THE BEST BOOK CATALOG 

IN THE WORLD 



HERE IS WHAT REVIEWERS 

HAVE SAID 

ABOUT OUR BOOKS AND CATALOG 



"The word that best describes these rants, raps, outcries and artworks is 
anti-authoritarian. ...you've probably got nothing else like it." — Booklist 

"...the hairiest, most anarchistic and amoral, most challenging arti- 
cles... ideal reading for open minds, or minds struggling to open them- 
selves. . ." — Trajectories 

"...the best-aimed controversial pieces, many on subjects shunned or 
forbidden to mainstream media. Grr; heh heh, tsk tsk; more power to 
'em." — Whole Earth Review 

"Throw away your newspapers and magazines and execute a well- 
placed kick into your TV set." — bOING bOING 

"The variety keeps it entertaining... while the gems in its midst make it 
more revealing than many a more serious radical text." — Anarchy 

"Even the informative and benign articles are usually on unusual sub- 
jects or present unusual perspectives. Others are controversial to the point 
of seeming deliberately provocative... The essays... are so diverse, imagi- 
native... and unpredictable, that there are ones which satisfy and repel any 
reader." — The Small Press Book Review 

". . .essays and other features that are nothing if not, well, controversial 
and unusual. ...There's something to interest or offend practically every- 
one... A lot of strange stuff here, and too much of it disturbingly close to 
the way things are to be funny." — New Pages 

"Uniting all contributors to Loompanics is opposition to a strong or 
militaristic State... Loompanics is precisely the kind of publication that 
British and academic anarchists might think gives anarchism its bad 
name. However, what lies in these pages are pointers to certain facets of 
modem culture, such as the informal economy, 'crime TV,' and the indi- 
vidual lawbreaker as hero." — Bulletin of Anarchist Research 

"Loompanics freaks will swoon and grow feverish... A groundbreak- 
ing collection that features some of the best names writing today." — 
Chris W. Becker, Factsheet Five

INTRODUCTION 

Welcome to the Loompanics Unlimited Book Catalog — The Best Book Catalog In the World. This catalog is an important 
source for anarchists, survivalists, iconoclasts, self-liberators, mercenaries, investigators, drop-outs, researchers, and just about 
anyone interested in the strange, the useful, the arcane, the oddball, the unusual, the unique and the diabolical. 

Herein you will find controversial and unusual books on a wide variety of subjects. Most of these books cannot be found in 
even the largest libraries. The majority of them will never be seen in bookstores. They are here now — available to you... 

So controversial are the books we offer that most magazines will not allow us to advertise. Most bookstores and distributors 
refuse to carry our titles. Most periodicals refuse to review our books, or mention our existence. 

That's OK with us. We know where we belong: we are the lunatic fringe of the libertarian movement. Because we do not 
believe in laws, rules or regulations. We have contempt for censorship, secrecy and dogmatism. We don't give a damn about 
being "respectable," or Politically Correct. We don't care about anything except having fun and your right to find out anything you 
want to know. Nothing is sacred to us, not even skepticism and self-reliance.

This catalog is for knowledge. It is for joy and pleasure. It is for the unlimited potential of each individual — for the undying spirit 
of human freedom and resistance to tyranny. Do not let anyone tell you what to think or feel — decide for yourself. 

We hope you enjoy our books and catalogs as much as we enjoy putting them together. If you know of any good books which 
are not currently in our catalog, please tell us about them. Happy book hunting, and good reading! 

— Michael Hoy, Pres.

HOW TO MAKE CASH MONEY SELLING 

AT SWAP MEETS, FLEA MARKETS, ETC. 

by Jordan Cooper 

You can make cash money selling at swap meets, flea markets, 
etc. — once in a while as a part-time income, or as a full-time busi- 
ness. Several years ago, Jordan Cooper found himself laid off and 
without an income. He and his wife held a yard sale, and then took 
the leftover items to a local swap meet. In one day, they took in sev- 
eral hundred dollars. He hasn't worked at a regular job since. Some- 
times, his profit for a single weekend is more than an entire month's 
salary at his former job! In this exciting new book, he offers you a pro- 
fessional insider's view of the swap meet scene, from selecting your 
merchandise to how to deal with the IRS. His tips and how-to's were 
learned in the Schbol of Hard Knocks — and can save you some hard 
knocks of your own.. Some of the topics covered include: • Working 
swap meets vs. : o$ehihg a retail store — nine advantages of working 
swap meets • How to select your merchandise — finding the right 
items for the right locale • How to set up your booth to both attract 
more customers and reduce your own workload • What to do during 
slow periods — surefire methods to get customers to come to your 
tables • Equipment and supplies — 12 things you should always take 
with you • How to figure out how much to charge for your merchan- 
dise • The easiest way to keep track of sales • Profiles of typical swap 
meet vendors — and typical customers • How to advertise at the 
swap meet — the best ways to draw customers to your exhibit • A 
complete glossary of terms used at swap meets • And much, much 
more. How to Make Cash Money Selling at Swap Meets, Flea Mar- 
kets, Etc. is the single finest book of its type ever published. Highly 
recommended.

PATENT SECRETS 
How you Can Protect Your Invention 

for as Little as $25 
by Steven Hampton and Craig Herrington 

So you've just invented a new thingamajig, and it's destined to 
change the world... or at least become a new American icon. Now all 
you have to do is get it on the market before some thief or industrial 
spy steals your idea and beats you to the punch! Well, before you 
gather up all your paperwork and head downtown, checkbook in 
hand, to find a patent lawyer and apply for a patent, there are some 
things you should know up front: • A patent costs thousands of dollars 
in legal and filing fees — and may offer precious little protection from 
a practical point of view • While a patent may look prestigious on 
paper, it is no guarantee of wealth for the inventor • You can protect 
your invention yourself for as little as $25 — and invest your time, 
money, and effort in developing your idea and getting it into the hands 
of the public. 

This book, written by two successful inventors who speak from 
experience, will explain the three major avenues available to you 
when it comes to protecting your invention — including the advan- 
tages and disadvantages of each. You'll also learn how to work out 
the kinks in your idea before you get the ball rolling, the three ques- 
tions you must ask yourself to determine whether your idea will fly, 
how to apply for grant money that will help to finance the development 
of your invention, the important criteria that willdetermine the mar- 
ketability of your product, and the three critical rules of thumb you 
must adhere to before you even consider pursuing a patent. In addi- 
tion to providing a detailed roadmap of the patent process, the 
authors explain the perils and pitfalls of seeking investors and licens- 
ing your product to a second or third party. Finally, for those brave 
souls willing to strike out on their own, the authors discuss the ins and 
outs of becoming an entrepreneur — and show you how it's possible 
to make millions in today's market by working only a few hours a day 
— without ever leaving home!

MONEY IS MY FRIEND 

Eliminate your financial fears — 

and take your first steps to financial freedom! 

byPhilLaut 

Does money slip through your 
fingers with the elusiveness of 
water? Would you like to stop 
working for money, and have 
money work for you? Would you 
like to make friends with money? 
If your answer to any of these 
questions is "Yes," then you want 
this book. 

Money Is My Friend is the 
best book 6n money to come 
along in a long time and we highly 
recommend jt. The purpose of this 
book is to eliminate poverty in the 
world and to make abundant living 
socially acceptable. This book is 
about achieving financial free- 
dom. Financial freedom is when 
you never do anything that you 
don't want to for money and you 
never omit doing something that 
you want to do because of lack of money. Another way of describing 
the condition of financial freedom is that money works for you, instead 
of you working for money. 

The author probes every possible area of life that could be holding 
the reader back from reaching his fullest potential. If money has 
always been a problem for you, you will find in this book some real 
insights into the cause of your situation. He draws attention to those 
areas of our emotional make-up which may be stopping us from "get- 
ting ahead." He then offers suggestions for specific affirmations to be 
used by the reader in dealing with those areas of inner conflict.

SMALL SCALE CRAYFISH FARMING 
For Food and Profit 



Crayfish are big busi- 
ness now! You've seen 
buckets of boiled crawdads 
in beer commercials; "Red 
Lobster" restaurants sell 
them as spicy "Cajun pop- 
corn;" Popeye's fried 
chicken franchises have a 
fried crayfish dinner. That's 
nationwide. In Louisiana and 
Texas they have been 
sought after for generations 
as a delicacy. 

Crayfish can be grown to 
a large, food-marketing size 
anywhere in the USA except 
Alaska. The pond habitat 
can be any size and need 
not be over a foot deep. The 
crayfish habitat can be on 
swamp or marginal land, 
and feed can be easily 
grown, while supplemental 
feeds are inexpensive. The 
feed conversion ratio is higher than any other meat-producing animal 
or fish. The flesh is similar to shrimp, crab, and lobster. The crayfish 
need less than a year to mature, breed and fatten up for harvest. 
They are self-stocking after the initial stocking the first year. 

Small Scale Crayfish Farming covers: • Distribution • Reproduc- 
tion • Life Cycle • Molting • Food • Site Selection • Water Needs • 
Stocking • High Growth Foods • Harvesting • Baits • Traps • Intensive 
Culture • Supply Sources • Marketing • And much, much more.

This is a complete placement handbook and guide for one of the 
most incredible jobs on earth. It is the type of position that most peo- 
ple dream about, but do not realize exists. The position is almost 
unknown to those outside the field, simply because people almost 
never give conscious thought to the way recreational and specialized 
vehicles reach their respective dealerships and destinations. 
Chances are you have never seen a motorized vehicle of a recre- 
ational or specialized nature being transported on a truck. That is 
because they almost never are, due to their size and height. Almost 
invariably, they are driven from their hundreds of points of manufac- 
ture, to their thousands upon thousands of dealerships and cus- 
tomers, throughout the USA and Canada. 

How to Get Paid $50,000 a Year to Travel tells you exactly how to 
find this kind of work. Virtually all drivers who own this book and work 
full time at it earn at least $50,000 a year, and most of those who fol- 
low the book's many tips and instructions earn between $45,000 and 
$60,000 a year. $45,000 per year is a comfortable level of earnings, 
because this provides you with the amount of time off per year that is 
enjoyed by most office workers. If you would like to explore making 
good money in this unique field, there is no better starting place than

NATURAL CAPITALISM 

Creating the Next Industrial Revolution 

by Paul Hawken, Amory Lovins, and L. Hunter Lovins 




<ttfj|j«,>fp»*t?t <»M*tMliMf*tinC.K I 



In this groundbreak- 
ing paradigm for the 
economy, three leading 
business visionaries 
explain how the world is 
on the verge of a new 
industrial revolution, one 
that promises to trans- 
form our fundamental 
notions about commerce 
and its role in shaping 
our future. Traditional 
capitalism, they argue, 
has always neglected to 
assign monetary value 
to its largest stock of 
capital — namely, the 
natural resources and 
eco-system services that 
make possible all eco- 
nomic activity, and all 
life. Natural capitalism in 
contrast, takes a proper 

accounting of these 

costs. As the first step 

toward a solution to environmental loss, it advocates resource pro- 
ductivity — doing more with less, wringing up to a hundred times as 
much benefit from each unit of energy or material consumed. Natural 
capitalism also redesigns industry on biological models that result in 
zero waste, shifts the economy from the episodic acquisition of goods 
to the continual flow of value and service, and prudently invests in 
sustaining and expanding existing stores of natural capital. 

Drawing upon sound economic logic, intelligent technologies, and 
the best of contemporary design, Natural Capitalism presents a

AMERICAN GINSENG: GREEN GOLD 

A grower's guide, including ginseng's history 

and use 

by W. Scott Persons 

From the author's introduction: "American Ginseng! It's one of the 
world's most valued plants. Each fall, thousands of mountain folk 
struggle up and down and across the wooded slopes of the eastern 
United States searching for this forest weed. They call it green gold. 

"I've found, however, that there's more gold to be made by grow- 
ing ginseng than by hunting it wild. It's almost a secret that each year 
over 500 tons, worth nearly 40 million dollars, are cultivated in the 
United States. In five or six years (and with little capital investment) 
you can raise $30,000 worth of ginseng on only half an acre! 

"Anyone who can raise flowers or vegetables can learn to farm 
this prized botanical. No sophisticated techniques are required — 
only a goodly portion of patience and a willingness to bend your back 
and get your hands dirty. 

"American ginseng has great potential as a small-scale cash 
crop. Young people can grow it as a second income or to increase 
their self-sufficiency, older folks as a source both of extra retirement 
income and of satisfying, moderately strenuous outdoor activity. The 
small farmer can net a greater profit cultivating ginseng on a rugged, 
otherwise idle, woodlot than he can net raising just about any other 
legal crop on an equal area of cleared land. An individual also can cul- 
tivate a small bed of this fascinating and subtle herb just for his (or 
her) own consumption." 

American Ginseng: Green Gold has everything you need to get 
started raising this high-value cash crop today.

WEALTH-BUILDING SECRETS 

As Practiced by the World's Richest People 

What the Kuwaitis Can Teach You about 

Getting Rich — and Staying Rich 

by William Beaver 

Ever wondered how the world's 
richest people got so rich? And 
what their secrets are for staying 
rich? Well, this is the book for you. 
It contains the wealth-building 
secrets of the Kuwaitis, who con- 
sistently rank at the top of the list of 
per capita income each year. 

"Kuwaiti wealth-building 

secrets!" you are probably thinking. 
"That's easy. If I had an oil well in 
my backyard, I'd be rich too!" 

Well, discovering that they con- 
trolled 10 percent of the world's oil 
reserves certainly made Kuwait 
and its citizens a lot richer, but they 
were rich long before oil was dis- 
covered, and they have put their oil 
money to work for them to amass 
an even greater fortune. 
"But they're in the Middle East," you say. 'Their secrets for making 
money wouldn't work here." 

Yes, they will; they will work anywhere for anybody. Is this a magic 
formula for getting rich quick? No, but if you put the four easy steps to 
wealth-building as practiced by the Kuwaitis to work for you, you too 
will get rich. Guaranteed. 

So, do you want to continue daydreaming about winning the lot- 
tery or striking oil, or do you want to get serious about making big 
money? Don't miss this opportunity to learn the secrets of the world's 
richest people.

SHADOW MERCHANTS 

Successful Retailing Without a Storefront 

by Jordan L Cooper 

In $hadow Merchants, the author of 
How To Make Cash Money Selling At 
Swap Meets, Flea Markets, Etc. and Sec- 
ond-Hand Success continues your educa- 
tion in unconventional ways to make 
money without having a job or owning a 
conventional retailing business. It takes a 
lot of time and money to start a small busi- 
ness such as a laundromat, restaurant, 
shoe store or machine shop. Most people 
don't have the time or money, but they do 
have the time and money to become a 
shadow merchant. 

A shadow merchant is a retailer who 
doesn't have a storefront, but sells his 
wares in any one or a combination of alternative market locations. 
Being a shadow merchant may not offer the prestige of being a store 
owner, but it definitely offers some advantages that far outweigh the 
negative aspects. These include: • Low initial investment • Can be 
done part-time while still holding down a full-time job • Low initial over- 
head, an important consideration even for existing businesses • 
Mobility — if your initial choice of locations is wrong, it's easy to 
change • The flexibility of being able to walk away from the business 
with a minimum loss if it fails. 

With only a small investment of time and money, it's possible to 
become a shadow merchant this coming weekend, or even before. It 
can be done in less than an hour, with a total cash investment of 
under $10. 

In Shadow Merchants, the author shares his years of experience 
with you. One way out of the rat race is to become a shadow mer- 
chant!

INSIDER SECRETS TO DIAMOND DEALING 

How Real Money Is Made 

by Maximill ian S. Callahan 

It has been said that 
diamonds are "the most 
valuable, not only of pre- 
cious stones, but of all 
things in this world." It 
has also been said that 
"diamonds are forever." 

The ageless, timeless 
allure and value of dia- 
monds cannot be denied. 
Something so small it can 
be mailed using a single 
postage stamp and yet so 
valuable it could buy and 
furnish a fine home in the 
United States is bound to 
inspire those adventur- 
ous souls willing to resort 
to more "unconventional" 
methods in seeking that 
ever-elusive pot of gold at 
the end of the rainbow. It 
takes a certain type of 
person to survive, and 
even thrive, in a cut- 
throat world where the 

businessmen in silk suits are arguably even tougher than the ruffian 
smugglers who move the contraband. 

Author Maximillian Callahan has seen it all, and in this book he 
shares the wisdom of his experience with you, from the basics of the 
business, including equipment requirements, essential industry jar- 
gon, and the factors that determine a diamond's value, to a careful 
straightforward, and revealing look at the cold, hard world of diamond 
smuggling.

DIE BROKE 
A Radical, Four-Part Financial Plan 
by Stephen M. Pollan and Mark Levine 

Die Broke: A Radical, Four-Part Financial Plan, is a book that 
will restore your confidence, increase your net worth, and help you to 
attain the lifestyle of your dreams! Co-authored by Stephen M. Pollan, 
one of America's most trusted financial advisors, it's a comprehensive 
guide to a new and utterly sane financial choice. In Die Broke, you'll 
learn that life is a game where a loser gives his money to Uncle Sam 
at the end. In order to play this game to your best advantage, there is 
a four-step process: Quit today! No, don't tell your boss to shove it... 
at least not out loud! But in your head, accept that from this day forth 
you're a free agent whose Number One priority is your personal bot- 
tom line. Pay Cash! Spending should be neither convenient nor pain- 
less. Saving, not spending, must become reflexive, and credit should 
be a rarely used tool for those few times (such as purchasing homes 
or cars) when paying cash is impossible. Don't Retire. Your work life 
should be a journey up and down hills, rather than a climb up a sheer 
cliff that ends with a jump into the abyss. Die Broke! It sounds terrify- 
ing, as if it should be the one intolerable outcome to your financial life. 
And yet, in truth, dying broke might be your best option for a life with- 
out fear: fear of failure and privation now; fear of imprisonment in the 
long run. 

The co-authors sum up their philosophy in one phrase: 'The last 
check you write should be to the undertaker — and it should bounce!" 
Read Die Broke: A Radical, Four-Part Financial Plan now, and 
make that prospect a reality!

GET A LIFE 

You Don't Need a Million to Retire Well 

3rd Edition 

by Ralph Warner 

A satisfying retirement is 
not for sale. Contrary to 
mainstream media scare 
tactics, you do not need a 
huge stash of cash — or 
mutual funds, and you most 
certainly won't have to eat 
dog food to survive old age. 

Author Ralph Warner 
says the chances of enjoy- 
ing an active, fulfilling retire- 
ment have very little to do 
with money. In fact, the 
lifestyle choices you make in 
your 40s and 50s will largely 
determine whether you'll live 
a happy retirement or a 
lonely, bored, depressed 
and sick one. 

Spending all your time 
working to save money — neglecting family, friends, and your own 
health — isn't the path to contentment. As one active retiree inter- 
viewed by Warner puts it, "If your entire life centers around your work, 
then your life stops when your work stops." 

This book teaches you the keys to retirement success, including: • 
Developing your curiosity • Protecting your health • Learning to make 
new friends of all ages • Staying physically active • Finding meaning- 
ful interests • Nurturing family relationships. 

Putting aside a nest egg is never a bad idea. But once you adopt 
sensible savings and investment plans, you can then go on to com- 
fortable middle years — and an excellent retirement.

HARD-CORE COLLECTIONS 

Brutal but Effective Techniques 

for Getting the Money 

by David DeMercurio 

"I am a professional private collector. Collecting money is my job, 
and I do it well. I get the money, and you can, too — after reading my 
book." 

In 20 years of chasing down debt dodgers, David DeMercurio has 
seen it all, and he has learned what works (and what doesn't) in col- 
lecting "uncollectable" bills. Hard-Core Collections reveals the pro- 
fessional secrets and methods of a private collections man. Find out 
how to make a good living collecting back child support, uncollected 
judgments, or any unpaid bills, as well as effecting evictions. 

Let's face it — there are a lot of debt-collecting services out there, 
and there are lots of laws that restrict what you can do to make 
debtors pay up. To succeed in this dirty business, you've got to have 
an edge. Hard-Core Collections gives you that edge with a brutal 
but effective approach to getting the bucks without breaking legs or 
winding up in jail.

MEMOIRS OF A BOOK SNAKE 

Forty Years of Seeking and Saving Old Books 

by David Meyer 

There is no such thing as a book 
snake, but this is what the author 
was mistakenly called. What he 
actually was for over forty years 
was a book scout — someone who 
sought, discovered, and saved old 
books wherever he could find them. 
Among his discoveries was a first 
edition of Jane Austin's Sense and 
Sensibility snatched from the clutter 
of a used bookstore's front window, 
signed novels by John Steinbeck 
and Somerset Maugham found in a 
heap in a resale shop, rare pioneer 
narratives turned up in a trunk in a 
neighbor's house. It was.an adven- 
ture which led him to important 
books by great writers of the past 

two centuries, lost in the upheavals of life, and found again in out-of- 
the-way places. And along the way he met booksellers as unique and 
unforgettable as the books they handled. This is a story of a scout 
who couldn't pass a place which looked like it might harbor books 
without stopping to find out. 

"Old bookshops have been the hunting grounds of my life. Also 
antique shops, second-hand resale shops, sometimes attics and 
basements, and just plain junk shops. No respectable dealer in anti- 
quarian books would admit to visiting such places, but that's where 
the book scouts, true treasure hunters that they. are, usually go. It's 
not the place that matters, it's what you find there."

INTRODUCTION 

The "black" market, as every libertarian knows, Is merely the real market driven 
underground by government controls. As politicians and bureaucrats eat away at 
your money with taxes and inflation, more and more people are beginning to partic- 
ipate in the "Underground Economy" — a booming economy whose transactions 
are not reported to the government. The government itself admits that billions of dol- 
lars a year go unreported in the underground economy. 

This section contains the most complete collection of books on the underground 
economy and related subjects ever offered for sale. The books range from scholarly 
treatises to the nuts-and-bolts of moonlighting, bartering, evading price controls and 
rationing, smuggling, and in general, dodging the regulations and taxes which ham- 
string the "mainstream" economy. The underground economy is the free market. 
May your taxes be low, and all your trades profitable... 





THE PRIVACY HANDBOOK 

Proven Countermeasures for Combating Threats 

to Privacy, Security, and Personal Freedom 

by Michael Chesbro 

"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase safety," 
observed Benjamin Franklin in 1759, "deserve neither liberty nor 
safety." Unfortunately, in today's climate of fear, the government, the 
media, and plenty of other American citizens see things differently. 

If you are not willing to accept "some restrictions on civil liberties to 
guarantee security" (as NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw, former Sec- 
retary of State James Baker, and others have phrased it), this book is 
essential reading. In it, Michael Chesbro shares hundreds of simple 
but effective measures you can take — short of armed revolution — to 
preserve your privacy and personal sovereignty in the face of Big 
Brother run amok. 

By being aware of the various threats to financial privacy, com- 
puter and online security, private communications, home security, and 
more, and by employing these techniques to combat them, you can 
protect yourself from rogue government agents and meddling bureau- 
cracies as well as nosy neighbors, prying family members, identity 
thieves, stalkers, solicitors, and other enemies of privacy and per- 
sonal liberty.

RAGNAR'S GUIDE 

TO THE UNDERGROUND ECONOMY 

by Ragnar Benson 

Ragnar Benson has a Ph.D. in sur- 
vival smarts and a knack for figuring out 
what topics are of vital interest to the 
average person who works hard to 
make ends meet, miners his own busi- 
ness and asks the same in return, And 
he's struck gold again with this timely 
guide to the underground economy. 

Through detailed case studies, 
Ragnar shows you how to make a living 
without having a job. This does not 
mean without working. The information 
in this book is not hypothetical or from 
secondary sources. It is straight from 
the horses' mouths: Thomas the wood- 
cutter, Nathan the lawyer, Mimi the 
housecleaner, David the carpenter, 
Junior the locksmith, Matthew and Sarah the produce vendors, Kevin 
the mechanic, Phil the mushroom stalker, and Keith the computer 
wizard, among others. 

All of these individuals are cashing in on today's booming econ- 
omy — without having to pay Uncle Sam and his free-loading cousins 
up to half of their earnings. From them you'll learn how to pick the 
right kind of work, work and get paid without supplying your Social 
Security number, prepare and stick to a budget, advertise your serv- 
ices or products, and finance your projects when you can't go to the 
bank. You'll also learn a plan for the down side of working under- 
ground. 

According to Ragnar, there has never been a better time for going 
underground. "Keith has more than ten years of successful experi- 
ence in the underground economy. Unlike many, he has completely 
researched the issuing of SSNs and 1099s. Concerning SSNs, he 
said, 7 often contract to do computer installation and programming 
with large corporations. Rather than spending $300 per hour plus 
expenses to bring in an expert from afar, they are happy to get me 
immediately at $50 per hour. If it's very short-term, one-time employ- 
ment, I provide completely bogus, made-up Social Security numbers. 
Otherwise I use the numbers of real people I have collected from var- 
ious sources. 

"'Conditions may be changing, but completely bogus numbers are 
good for at least three months before notice is received that these 
numbers are invalid. Notification to the employer only involves the fact 
that the questionable employee must appear in person to explain 
things to a local Social Security officer. Nothing more serious occurs. 
Usually I am long gone by notice time,' Keith said. 

"'In the case of long-term contracts I supply real numbers gleaned 
from old employment records, credit reports, driver's licenses, hunting 
licenses, and any other sources I can lay my hands on. Virtually every 
application these days includes a place for a Social Security number,' 
Keith claimed. 7 am continually conscious of the need for fresh num- 
bers. It is surprising how many just pop up in my normal day-to-day 
routine. Got one this A.M. off a credit application lying on a new-car 
dealer's desk.' 

"'Social Security administrators claim that they make no real effort 
to sort things out when bogus extra earnings appear on other peo- 
ple's records. They should be glad for the extra Social Security, one 
clerk told me. Apparently this is a very common occurrence these 
days.' 

"SSNs are not required for workers when payment is made to their 
corporation. Keith reiterates that making up corporate ID numbers is 
easy." 

With the help you get from Ragnar's Guide to the Underground 
Economy, the dividends will be immediate and unlimited... and that's 
a promise you can take to the bank!

HOW TO DO BUSINESS 
"OFF THE BOOKS" 

by Adam Cash 

Adam Cash, author of the classic Guerrilla Capitalism, returns 
with his second book on the Underground Economy. 

The IRS continues its abuses of the rights of Americans, and gov- 
ernments at all levels continue to raise taxes and spend beyond their 
means. Millions of Americans at all economic levels are feeling the 
squeeze, and are fighting back — not only by protesting and writing 
letters to their congressmen, but by actually disobeying the law by just 
simply not reporting income, and by falsifying their tax returns. These 
people are what we call "Guerrilla Capitalists," people who are prac- 
ticing free enterprise in this unfree economy of ours. Adam Cash first 
showed you exactly how millions of Americans are defending them- 
selves against a greedy and coercive government by evading taxes, 
and now he digs even deeper into the secrets of the Underground 
Economy with his amazing new volume, How to Do Business "Off 
the Books" 

Contents of this amazing book include: • Why taxes will keep 
going up, regardless of the promises of politicians • How the fat cats 
avoid paying taxes — and why their techniques are not for you • Look- 
ing for loopholes in the tax laws • The Underground Economy and the 
law • The ins and outs of receipts — how Guerrilla Capitalists can 
multiply "business" deductions • How to "backstop" your tax returns 
and falsify deductions • Case histories of actual underground busi- 
nesses — how they avoid getting caught and what you can learn from 
them • What types of businesses are best for the Underground Econ- 
omy — and how to get one started. 

How to Do Business "Off the Books" shows you how millions of 
your fellow Americans are practicing free enterprise in the Under- 
ground Economy.

HOW TO GET TAX AMNESTY 

A Guide to the Forgiveness of IRS Debt, 

Including Penalties & Interest 

by Daniel J. Pi I la 

Deep within our economy lies an entire culture comprised of those 
who have resigned themselves to a lifetime of running and hiding 
from the tax man. There is no freedom and there is no rest. Their 
hope each day is only for survival and someday for: TAX AMNESTY! 
Today's statistics reveal that a staggering 6 million citizens have been 
driven to non-filing of tax returns. They have been forced under- 
ground by abusive tax collection, the assessment of strangulating 
penalties and usurious interest. With tax debts increasing at a crip- 
pling 24% annually, it has actually become more productive for them 
not to work, to stay underground! 

In How to Get Tax Amnesty, Daniel J. Pilla describes in detail 
four tax amnesty programs that can work for you — today. Under this 
program, the IRS must accept the taxpayer's offer as payment in full, 
even if the offer is nothing. You win a Fresh Start! The programs out- 
lined in this book are the direct result of policy changes within the IRS. 
If IRS indebtedness has become a way of life for you, it's time for you 
to reap the benefits of these new policies. Now is the time for TAX 
AMNESTY!

SURVIVING AN IRS TAX AUDIT 
by Attorney Frederick W. Daily 

Get the information you 
need to beat the IRS at its 
own game! If an IRS audit 
looms in your future, you 
probably feel more than a 
little uneasy. What will the 
auditor ask? What Will he 
look for? Worry no more. 
Surviving an IRS Tax 
Audit explains what to say, 
what to do, even what to 
wear, so that a visit with an 
auditor doesn't turn into a 
disaster. 

With material pulled 
directly from IRS training 
manuals, Surviving an 
IRS Tax Audit exposes the 
tricks of the auditor's trade. 
It provides you with a pro- 
file of people most likely to 
be audited, and discusses whether or not the IRS can examine your 
"lifestyle" during an audit. Author Fred Daily, a tax attorney who has 
helped thousands of people with audits, also suggests three steps to 
take when an unreasonable auditor goes too far. 

In plain English, Surviving an IRS Tax Audit covers: • the audit 
process from start to finish • the different types of audits — corre- 
spondence, office and field • appealing an audit within the IRS • going 
to Tax Court to protest your audit • and much more. 

Nearly 50% of all taxpayers will be audited during their lifetime. 
Surviving an IRS Tax Audit levels the playing field, giving you the 
information you need to act and speak like a tax pro.

STAND UP TO THE IRS 

Fight IRS Collections • 

Defend Yourself In an Audit • Sixth Edition 

by Attorney Frederick W. Daily 

This is the book that the Internal Revenue Service doesn't want 
you to read! No three letters frighten the average American more than 
IRS. And that shouldn't be surprising, given that nearly 50% of all tax- 
payers are likely to be audited at least once during their lifetime. But 
with the help of Stand Up to the IRS, taxpayers can fight the fear- 
some power. San Francisco tax attorney Fred Daily reveals secrets 
that the IRS doesn't want you to know, and arms the attentive readier 
with all of the pertinent information needed to confront America's most 
powerful and impersonal government agency. 

Stand Up to the IRS explains how to: 

• Gather documentation for an audit • Learn what to say 

— and not to say — when facing an auditor • Read and 
comprehend an audit report • Appeal an audit • Obtain 
a copy of the auditor's notes • Take the IRS to Tax Court 

— nearly half the people who go to Tax Court win at 
least a partial victory. And, if you still owe money, Stand 
Up to the IRS tells how to: • Get a long-term payment 
plan • Settle your tax bill for pennies on the dollar • 
Determine if your tax debt can be eliminated through 
bankruptcy • Stop wage and property seizures. 

If you've got tax problems, get a copy of Stand Up to the IRS...

HOW TO SURVIVE THE IRS 

My Battles Against Goliath 

by Michael Louis Minns 

How to Survive the IRS, by renowned trial attorney Michael Louis 
Minns, shows you, through first-hand case studies, exactly what can 
be done if you are accused of wrong-doing by the IRS. Over the 
course of his twenty-four-year law career, Minns has developed the 
reputation for being the best criminal tax defense attorney in the 
country. When it comes to battling the IRS, his record is astonishing. 
This book chronicles several cases that he has handled over the 
years. All are indicative of the IRS's gross abuse of power. 

In these pages you will hear from people who didn't understand 
the tax laws, people who didn't believe they had to pay taxes, and 
people who were led astray by bogus tax experts. All were average 
citizens who were prosecuted mercilessly by the IRS. You will also 
read about: 

• IRS agents who stormed a taxpayer's home, holding 
laser-sighted guns on his family members. The charge: 
alleged tax evasion! 

• An IRS agent who "edited" an interview tape of an audit. 

• How IRS agents lied on reports and stole, or altered tax 
records. 

• How little the IRS really knows about its own tax code. 
Minns also explains the five different kinds of tax offenders. He 

reveals what kinds of actions raise red flags for the IRS, and explains 
what kinds of tax avoidance do and do not work (and most do not). 

How to Survive the IRS contains more than just shocking stories 
of government bureaucracy and abuse. A helpful chapter entitled 
"One Hundred Tax Tips" will enable readers to steer clear of the 
predicament that many of his clients became embroiled in. The 
insightful appendix provides information on all of the classic ways in 
which people try to get out of paying taxes, covering topics ranging 
from deductions and offshore banking, to tax shelters and multiple 
trust schemes. How to Survive the IRS is sure to educate and infuri- 
ate as it exposes the inner workings of the federal government's most 
feared agency.

TELLING LIES 

Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, 

Politics, and Marriage 

Revised and Updated 

by Paul Ekman 

The success of business negotiations and personal relationships, 
as well as international diplomacy and espionage, often hinges on 
determining what others may or may not be concealing. In this book, 
Paul Ekman, a renowned authority on emotion, facial expression, and 
gesture, reveals how to identify deceit. By knowing what to look for in 
others' faces, voices, bodies, and words, we can detect leakages and 
deception clues that indicate lies. Chapters include: • Lying, Leakage, 
and Clues to Deceit • Detecting Deceit from Words, Voice, or Body • 
Facial Clues to Deceit • Dangers and Precautions • The Polygraph as 
Lie Catcher • Lie Checking • Lie Catching in the 1990s • Lies in Public 
Life • and much more. 

In addition, the author cites the case of Lt. Col. Oliver North and 
Vice Admiral John Poindexter during the Iran/Contra scandal con- 
gressional hearings, to demonstrate his judicious use of behavioral 
clues to detect lies. 

This is the first book to explore the many dimensions of lying — 
the makings of a successful liar, why so many of us become willing 
victims — and to offer straightforward and cautious methods for 
uncovering deception. *

Making & Breaking Secret Messages 

from Hieroglyphs to the Internet 

by Fred B.Wrixon 

Codes, Ciphers & 
Other Cryptic & Clan- 
destine Communica- 
tion chronicles the 
world of secret com- 
munication from hiero- 
glyphics to the 
Internet. The making 
and breaking of codes 
through history has 
won or lost wars, 
exposed political 
intrigue, disguised 
secret religions and 
secured financial 
transactions. It is a 
fascinating world of 
technological 
advances, cloak and 
dagger maneuvers 
and war espionage. 

Whether browsing through or reading cover to cover, you'll learn 
the amazing achievements of cryptology from Rosicrucians' and 
Masons' secret transmissions, to the Ultra operation which broke the 
German code and helped win World War II, to computer codes that 
protect ATMs and the Internet today. 

Progressing methodically through the development of each coding 
method, concise and engaging profiles describe the structural basis 
of each system and the thrilling stories that surround it. Biographies 
identify the significant code developers and breakers. Illustrations of 
letter and number patterns recreate the code makers' procedures, 
and sketches of coding machines show the actual devices used in the 
field. 

Every type of coded communication is covered from transposi- 
tions, substitutions and polygraphic ciphers to signals, stenography 
and ancient symbols. In special chapters, code and cipher breaking 
hints and puzzles explain how to make your own secret messages 
and how to break other people's. Anyone can become an amateur 
cryptologist!

1 AM NOT A NUMBER! 

Freeing America from the ID State 

Revised and Expanded Second Edition 

by Claire Wolfe 

No one says it better than Claire Wolfe: "A passive, malleable, 
well-catalogued, and constantly observed population is what every 
tyrant in history has desired and what no government of the free 
would ever wish for." But that is exactly the kind of government the 
world — including the U.S. — - is headed for. 

We're already compelled to carry a government-assigned number 
to get health care, enroll our kids in school, open a bank account, 
drive a car, hold a job, buy stocks, or even rent a video. We endure 
scans, warrentless searches, and inspections. Cameras peer at us 
everywhere. Rude, ignorant "security screeners" pat us down at air- 
ports while we cower submissively. The "Patriot Act" (in the name of 
"homeland security") encourages neighbors, business contacts, and 
strangers to spy and report on us if we seem "suspicious." 

And things are getting worse every day. 

This book is for people who want to take steps, within their own 
lives and their communities, to ensure that the surveillance stops 
here. It is not for the weak willed. As Wolfe writes, you can't have both 
freedom and a convenient, secure, go-along-to-get-along life. If you 
aren't willing to take personal risks, read no further. 

"We are about to be numbered like prisoners and tracked like cat- 
tle in a herd. Now we face three choices: to bow and be slaves, to 
rebel — or simply to live free, in spite of their rule." If the last choice is 
one that appeals to you, this is the book for you. 

Find out... 

• How we came to have a national ID driver's license in 
spite of Congress having voted to repeal the damn thing 
(and how to-get around it). 

• How the "Deadbeat Dad" law intrudes on the privacy of 
every one of us (including childless people and respon- 
sible parents) and how that law was used as the excuse 
to construct a database that will be used to track our 
every move. 

• How new communities of free Americans could be the 
best way to fight oppression. These may exist physi- 
cally or simply consist of like-minded individuals with a 
common cause. Separate, private societies can exist, 
even within an oppressive country, linked by their com- 
mitment to freedom. 

Claire Wolfe believes "we can create an entire Free America right 

under the eyes of — right inside the gaping maw of — the growing ID 

state." We are drawing a line in the sand and saying, "No, I am not a 

number. I am a free human being." If you are fed up too, get I Am Not 

a Number! and take those first steps toward living free.

HOW TO HIDE THINGS IN PUBLIC PLACES 
by Dennis Fiery 

Did you ever want to hide something 
from prying eyes, yet were afraid to do so 
in your home? Now you can secrete your 
valuables away from home, by following 
Dennis Fiery's eye-opening instructions in 
How to Hide Things in Public Places. 
The world around us is filled with cubby- 
holes and niches that can be safely 
employed... and this book identifies them. 
Among the topics covered are: • How can 
you possibly hide things in public places? 
• Principles of public hiding • More princi- 
ples and strategies • Containers, dead 
drops and miniatura • Landscape and hid- 
ing around the home • The street and 
other urban areas • Hiding items with innocent bystanders • Public 
buildings and businesses • Some specific public buildings to consider 
• Relaying messages • Some safety rules -And much more! 

Dennis Fiery says: "Many books have been written about hiding. 
But they all focus on privately hiding things in your own home, car, or 
on your person. Why should we need to hide things in public places? 
Well, many reasons exist for hiding things, and there are just as many 
reasons for hiding things in public places.... 

"When I talk about 'public places' I'm referring to places that any- 
one can enter or reach, as opposed to 'private places' such as those 
inside your home or other people's homes. Some public places are 
supposed to be private — like the storerooms in back of shops, and 
many of the hidey spots discussed throughout this book. But since we 
can usually get away with sneaking into these places they are 
included in the discussion." 

Illustrated with numerous photographs, and including an index of 
hiding places, appendices of Simplex lock combinations and appro- 
priate vendors, and a bibliography, this is the most comprehensive 
and informative book ever written about public hiding spots. Eliminate 
the risks involved with hiding your possessions at home by utilizing 
the techniques contained in How to Hide Things In Public Places.

Home Security with Inexpensive Safes 

by Duncan Long 

With government restrictions on what we can and can't own, with 
searches of supposedly private safety deposit boxes becoming rou- 
tine, more and more people are taking control over guarding their

get them for the least amount of money? 

The Poor Man's Fort Knox provides a detailed analysis of the

photographs and a lot of hands-on experience, Duncan Long reveals: 

• the secret to finding top-of-the-line safes at bargain basement prices 

• dirt cheap alternatives to safes • the best custom safes designed 
specifically for firearms • the most secure fireproof location in any 
home • tricks for getting burglars to ignore your safe • and much 
more!

MODERN CAMOUFLAGE 
by Duncan Long 

Here is an insider's look at both tried and true camouflage tech- 
niques as well as new tactics that professional soldiers use to conceal 
themselves on today's modern battlefields. Modern Camouflage 
also discloses the secrets of hiding personnel and equipment from 
observation and how to confuse and deceive an enemy as to the 
existence, location or nature of vehicles and buildings. 

This book also gives a straight, no-holds-barred assessment of 
infrared equipment capable of defeating many types of camouflage 
and shows how simple third world tactics can surmount the threat 
posed by the most expensive eavesdropping equipment modern 
armies have. Included is a look at creating decoys, dummy emplace- 
ment and fake vehicles which will draw enemy attention and fire away 
from hidden friendly sites. 

In an age when fortresses are easily breached by artillery and 
"smart" bombs and missiles, the techniques of avoiding detection 
through camouflage are essential and will often decide whether an 
army faces quick and disastrous defeats or comes out on top. 
Whether you're in the safety of your home, simply interested in mod- 
ern military tactics, or sitting in a foxhole concerned with surviving on 
today's high tech battlefield, Modern Camouflage is an eye opener 
that belongs on your must read book list. "

PERSONAL PRIVACY 

THROUGH FOREIGN INVESTING 

Second Edition 

by Trent Sands 

In recent years, new federal laws have made it ever more difficult 
for Americans to conduct their financial affairs with any degree of pri- 
vacy. Recent US Supreme Court decisions have even concluded that 
citizens have no legal expectation of privacy in the operation of their 
bank accounts and other financial investments. Overseas investing 
offers a viable way for an individual to reclaim some of his financial 
privacy. But the individual who is contemplating taking this step needs 
to understand that he will be violating many US Federal laws. Trent 
Sands shows how to secretly get around these privacy-destroying 
laws, and discusses which foreign countries are the best bets for 
financial privacy seekers. 

This book is sold for informational purposes only. ,

SECRET MESSAGES 
Concealment, Codes & Other Types 

of Ingenious Communication 
by William S. Butler & L. Douglas Keeney 

From the fall of Troy to 
interstellar messages by way 
of the Underground Railroad 
and Captain Midnight, Secret 
Messages is a collection of 
ninety-five of the most inter- 
esting examples of code and 
concealed communications 
throughout history. The 
authors have compiled a fas- 
cinating array of encrypted 
communications from a varied 
field. Many of these examples 
are from times of war, includ- 
ing the story of how a too sim- 
ple code was the undoing of 
Benedict Arnold, and how 
Commander Jeremiah Den- 
ton blinked in Morse code to 
indicate that his North Viet- 
namese captors were tortur- 
ing him. Others are more 
lighthearted, such as the cre- 
ative use of hand signals by catchers and managers in modern base- 
ball. And some selections offer a glimpse into how codes are used in 
everyday life, unbeknownst to most of us, in places like hospitals, 
police stations, and firehouses. 

Uncovering hidden layers, Secret Messages will amaze you with 
its new insights into history and how it has been shaped by cryptogra- 
phy. It also explores the future of encryption, where technology will 
enable vast amounts of information to be hidden within minuscule 
hosts such as human DNA, or the dot of an V. Full of stories of 
human creativity and ingenuity, Secret Messages is an engaging 
book that will inspire and delight.

THE PRIVACY POACHERS 

How the Government and Big Corporations 

Gather, Use and Sell Information About You 

by Tony Lesce 

The amount of information about you kept on computers is stag- 
gering: bank statements, credit card reports, medical records, school 
transcripts, job applications, driving history, videotape rentals, tax 
returns, legal records... the list goes on and on. And wherever there's 
information, The Privacy Poachers are trying to get their hands on it. 
The Privacy Poachers explains exactly who is collecting information 
about you and what they're doing with it. Government and private 
snoops can combine data from your financial transactions with infor- 
mation from surveillance, telephone taps, mail monitoring, and other 
privacy invasions to create a detailed dossier of your life. This infor- 
mation is then packaged and sold, over and over again, without your 
knowledge or permission. 

The Privacy Poachers can have a devastating impact on your 
life. Many New Englanders found out the hard way when a national 
credit bureau falsely tagged them as deadbeats. An Arizona man 
found out when a police computer responded to his name with the 
warning, "High Risk: AIDS." Despite privacy laws, false or damaging 
information can be broadcast around the globe in the blink of an eye. 

The Privacy Poachers, explains how you can take control over 
most of the information collected on you. After you read this book, you 
will know what your legal rights are and how to keep personal infor- 
mation away from the Privacy Poachers.

CRYPTO 

How the Code Rebels Beat the Government — 

Saving Privacy in the Digital Age 

by Steven Levy 

In this full-scale account of 
the great Code War that shook 
the computer agie, best-selling 
author Steven Levy (author of 
Hackers) lucidly outlines the 
development of a "people's" 
cryptography anp its head-on 
collision with the US govern- 
ment. Crypto is about privacy in 
the information age and about 
the nerds and visionaries who, 
over twenty years ago, predicted 
that the Internet's greatest virtue 
— free access to! information — 
was also its most! perilous draw- 
back: a possible end to privacy. 

Those fearless "crypto 
rebels" come alive here in a nar- 
rative that is as dramatic as a 
real-life thriller, a hugely read- 
able blend of genjuses-at-work, sci-fi, and political intrigue, anchored 
by the firm voice of a guide who knows technology, politics, and digi- 
tal culture. There is Whit Diffie, the long-haired Newton of crypto who 
invented the astounding "public key" solution; David Chaum, whose 
"anonymous digital money" actually threatened the global financial 
infrastructure; and "cypherpunks" like Phil Zimmermann who freely 
distributed military-strength codes under the nose of the US govern- 
ment. There is also the first behind-the-scenes account of what the 
secretive National Security Agency really had in mind when it created 
the controversial jciipper Chip" — and how the Clinton administration 
bungled the operation. 

In addition, Levy explores what turned out to be a decisive devel- 
opment in the crypto wars — the unlikely alliance between the wire- 
heads and big business. Their shared goal: to defend our right to 
privacy from the government and other snoops. From the writer who 
made "hackers" a! household word, Crypto is a groundbreaking book 
about the hottest jssue on the electronic frontier. It is destined to be a 
classic in its field. |

FAKE I.D. 



The famous Loompanics "Fake I.D." Section! 
The Most Comprehensive Collection of 
Fake I.D. Books Ever Offered For Sale! 

INTRODUCTION 

If you wonder why we 
have a whole Section 
devoted to Fake I.D., 
take a good look at the 
picture on the left, and 
think about it, really hard. 
Many times throughout 
history, having the right 
"papers" has meant the 
difference between slav- 
ery and freedom, if not 
life and death. 

The government 
always lies when they 
offer excuses for why 
they want to tattoo num- 
bers on all of us — they 
say they want to do it to 
"prevent crime," or to 
stop "illegal aliens," or 
"so you can collect the 
proper amount of Social 
Security," or some other 
bullshit. The real reason, 
of course, is that they 
want to have as much 
control over each and 
every one of us as they 
can get. I.D. cards, I.D. number, "identification papers," and 
other garbage heaped upon you by the government telling 
you who you are — these are the real trappings of totalitari- 
anism. 

At Loompanics, we believe each citizen owes it to himself 
to find out as much about I.D. cards as he can, as a matter of 
self-defense. This Special Fake I.D. Section will remove the 
mystery from I.D. cards and reveal the government's paper 
reality for what it really is: ONLY PAPER... 

In this amazing Section, you will find out all you ever 
wanted to know about FAKE I.D. A couple of extra sets of I.D. 
in "safe" names should be in everyone's survival kit (look at 
that picture again!). From all the best ways to get I.D. in what- 
ever name you want right from the government itself, to how 
to make your own I.D., to books on makeup and plastic sur- 
gery — Loompanics Unlimited is very proud to offer our 
customers the most comprehehsive selection on books of 
Fake I.D. and related subjects ever assembled. 

We strongly urge you to buy these books NOW. They 
could easily "disappear" from the market... 
Are your papers in order, sir?

CREDIT REPAIR 
You don't have to be stuck with bad credit 

6th Edtion 
by Attorneys Robin Leonard and Deanne Loonin 

You don't have to be stuck 
with bad credit. Perhaps 
you've had problems with 
credit. Perhaps you haven't, 
but your credit report says 
you do anyway — nearly 70 
percent of credit reports con- 
tain errors. Either way, a less- 
than-flattering report can hurt 
your chances of qualifying for 
a credit card, mortgage or 
any other kind of loan — it 
can even get in the way of 
renting an apartment or find- 
ing a job. But a bad credit 
report can always be 
improved, or corrected. In 
plain English, Credit Repair 
shows you how to fix your 
credit situation quickly, easily 
and legally. 

Learn how to: • avoid overspending • establish a realistic budget • 
get out of debt now • build a financial cushion • read and understand 
your credit report • get mistakes on your credit report fixed • get posi- 
tive information added to your credit report • negotiate with creditors •

prospective employers? Probably not. According to this book, you're 
probably falling into the same Burmese tiger traps as everybody else. 
By understanding how a shrewd employer reads a resume, you'll

phony a mile away. This book tells you how to interpret the details, do

In How to Spot a Phony Resume, you'll learn: 

• The 10 things that arouse suspicion • Reasons 
employers do — and do not — check out infor- 
mation on resumes • How to avoid public embar- 
rassment • If it's too good to be true — it probably 
is • What other documents support — or give 
away — about an applicant • The questions 
employers ask references. 
So before you go ahead and turn yourself from an auto mechanic 
into a brain surgeon on paper, or before you hire someone who 
seems Just right for the job, read this book. You'll save time, money, 
and most important — aggravation and embarrassment.

ACQUIRING NEW ID 

How to Easily Use the Latest Computer 

Technology to Drop Out, Start Over, 

and Get On with Your Life 

by Ragnar Benson 

Life today is fraught with uncer- 
tainty. Who can predict when love 
might turn to hate, a prosperous busi- 
ness be driven to bankruptcy by a 
frivolous lawsuit or an unethical com- 
petitor, or an honest person forced to 
flee from an overzealous govern- 
ment? Many people now believe that 
every thinking person should have a 
well-conceived, ready-to-activate 
escape plan just in case of an emer- 
gency. 

The recycled information avail- 
able in most traditional new ID books 
— most of which are 10 to 15 years 
old — fails to take into account the 
way computer technology has 
changed the process of obtaining (or 
monitoring) identity documents. You can no longer hope to start over 
using the "dead baby's birth certificate" trick so popular in the past. 
Everyone is aware of that ruse, including Social Security, driver's 
license and passport bureaus, and child support enforcement agen- 
cies. 

What you need is a plan that allows you to make your own identity 
documents on your home computer. In this comprehensive, stretch- 
to-fit escape plan, Ragnar Benson explains how to drop out, start 
over, and get on with your life!

FRAUDULENT CREDENTIALS 



This reprint of a 1985 report from 
the US House of Representatives 
covers phony diplomas, degrees, and 
academic credentials. It contains 
information on the FBI's "Operation 
Dipscam," which in the past few years 
has shut down dozens of diploma 
mills in the US. 

The report contains reproductions 
of advertisements from diploma mills, 
and photos of phony degrees pur- 
chased through the mail. It goes into 
considerable detail on how doctors 
and other professionals use these 
fraudulent credentials, with many fas- 
cinating case histories. 

"The FBI has found that an individ- 
ual could obtain credentials from a wide selection of institutions by the 
meeting of one single requirement — the payment of a fee ranging 
from $25 for a meritorious citation to $28,000 for a medical degree 
complete with transcripts and letters of recommendation... The FBI 
found that fraudulent diplomas may be issued in the name of the 
diploma mill itself or they may be falsified duplicates of diplomas 
issued by legitimate colleges and universities. During raids closing 
one diploma mill, FBI personnel have confiscated thousands of falsi- 
fied diplomas identical to those conferred to graduates of such rep- 
utable institutions as Harvard, Yale, Emory, and the University of 
Alabama as well as those of nonexistent 'sound-alike' schools." Fas- 
cinating reading for anyone interested in the "problem" of Fraudulent 
Credentials!

UNDERSTANDING U.S. IDENTITY DOCUMENTS 
by John Q. Newman 

Loompanics Unlimited is very proud to present the largest and 
most in-depth study of the United States identification system ever 
prepared — John Q. Newman's Understanding U.S. Identity Docu- 
ments. Must reading for all new identity seekers, and anyone else 
interested in identification, false identification and alternate I.D.! 

You know who you are. Your friends and family know who you.are. 
But thousands of people you deal with in government and business 
know you only from a document. If you alter your documents, you can 
evade taxes, regulation and supervision. You can also reap a wide 
spectrum of benefits and privileges that are bestowed on those peo- 
ple the system likes. 

Understanding U.S. Identity Documents provides a detailed 
examination of the most important documents for establishing iden- 
tity: birth certificates, Social Security cards, driver's licenses and 
passports. It shows how each document is generated and used, and 
explains the strengths and weaknesses of the agencies issuing them. 

Understanding U.S. Identity Documents contains the most 
detailed examination of basic identity documents ever made available 
to the public. Each of the four sections contains more information 
than most entire books on the subject. 

There is a no more thorough, up-to-date reference on U.S. identity 
documents and the U.S. identity system available anywhere. John Q. 
Newman's Understanding U.S. Identity Documents is an essential 
reference for anyone concerned with their official identity and how it is 
maintained and manipulated.

Revised and Expanded Third Edition 

by Trent Sands 

Becoming a completely dif-

all about finding the chinks in the 
system where you can climb in 
and use it to your advantage. In 
this third edition of Reborn in 
the USA, updated for the new 
millennium, author Trent Sands 
expertly tells you how to create 
and obtain official documents, 
while avoiding the common pit- 
falls that land those unprepared 
in jail.

Credit, Reborn Overseas, and 
Reborn in Canada) gives com- 
plete information about how to 
obtain a new driver's license, 
passport and other documents. 
After reading this new edition, you'll discover what the pros know: 
• How to duplicate modern security features such as holograms, seals 
and magnetic strips. • How to determine if an identity you wish to 
acquire is already being used — and how to escape detection once 
you're using it. • How to instantly get a new "job" or "business." • With 
the advent of computers in the last decade, government and law 
enforcement agencies have spun tighter webs around anyone living 
in America. Now, those seeking new identities can fight back and dip 
into their own computer arsenals for help in creating a totally new — 
totally clean — paper trail. 

Perhaps most important, you'll learn how to cover your tracks, and 
make fresh new ones — as somebody else.

HOW TO SPOT A LIAR IN A JOB INTERVIEW 

An employer's guide to detecting 

those who speak falsely in interviews, 

assessment sessions, and all other 

communication when seeking employment. 

by Wayne D. Ford, Ph.D. 

The hiring process at all levels 
of any organization grows neces-? 
sarily more complex with the 
advancement of time. New statu- 
tory laws on the books, new court 
decisions, and stacks of new reg- 
ulations, rules, procedures, proto- 
cols and interpretations of political 
correctness have all made the job 
of hiring trickier for the hiring 
organization. Add to this appli- 
cants who are less than truthful 
on r6sum6s and applications, 
who procure false references and 
who lie in the interview process, 
and you can see why more and 
more managers are having less 
and less fun hiring people. 

This book will show you how 
to: weed out dishonest applicants; 
reduce turnover; lower negligent 
hiring risks; improve standards; avoid recruiting mistakes; and main- 
tain organizational integrity. 

Use these highly effective screening techniques: same question 
series; body language; personal assessment; technical questions; 
resume cross check; application check; reference checks; back- 
ground checks; focused stress; lie traps; interview tools; and plan- 
ning.

IDENTITY THEFT 

The Cybercrime of the Millennium 

by John Q. Newman 

Your most valuable possession is not 
your house, your car, or your collection 
of antique jewelry. Your most valuable 
possession is what makes you you — 
your identity. What would happen if 
someone stole it? 

Each year, more than 500,000 Amer- 
icans fall victim to identity theft, and that 
number is rising. A stolen identity can 
mean the loss of your job, your credit 
rating, your friends, and in extreme 
cases, can result in a prison sentence 
for a crime you did not commit. 

Chapters include: • Information 
Everywhere • Credit Bureaus • Partners 
in Identity Theft • Government Data and 
Identity Theft • The Wild World of the Information Broker • The Fake 
ID Seller • Another Part of the Identity Theft Game • Other Informa- 
tion Sources for Identity Thieves • The Different Types of Identity 
Thieves • Identity Theft by Organized Crime • The Long-Term Identity 
Thief • The Malevolent Identity Thief • Avoiding Identity Thieves • 
Fighting Back After Victimization • The Internet and Identity Theft • 
Stopping Identity Theft • And More. 

In Identity Theft: The Cybercrime of the Millennium, you will 
learn: • How identity thieves use computer networks and other infor- 
mation sources to adopt, abuse, and subsequently ravage the identi- 
ties of unsuspecting victims within a few weeks. • Why credit bureaus 
and government agencies can be considered the identity thief's part- 
ners in crime. • What you can do to protect yourself from identity theft, 
and how to fight back effectively if you are one of the unlucky victims. 
• Two things that must be done immediately in order to stop identity 
theft forever. 

This book is the most effective tool in your arsenal against the 
cyberspace grifter. Use it to protect your identity — while you still have 
one.

sinister streets and through the twisting alleys of life as a fugitive 
abroad. Learn what your m.o. must be in a place where the rules are 
entirely different than they are in your home country, foreign security 
forces may be tracking your every move, and a seemingly innocent 
cultural misunderstanding can get you caught... or killed. 

Drawing on his more than 20 years of experience slinking unde- 
tected through the world's great cities, quietly sailing into and out of 
exotic ports, and moving like a shadow over the backcountry of six 
continents, Abaygo will teach you: • various means to cross heavily 
guarded borders — and when to resort to overt versus covert meth- 
ods • how to best hightail it out of North America for points abroad • 
the many, many ways to get around undetected in Europe, Asia, 
Africa, and elsewhere • the best places on the planet to go deep 
underground • secrets of low-profile living and working overseas. 

Whether you are a government operative, corporate intelligence 
collector, someone who witnessed something you now wish you had- 
n't, or simply a traveler who wants to learn how to blend in to the local 
scene and remain anonymous in your journeys, Kenn Abaygo points 
out the pitfalls and problems of overseas escape and helps you get 
around them safely.

HOW TO LEGALLY OBTAIN A SECOND 

CITIZENSHIP AND PASSPORT — AND WHY YOU 

WANT TO 

by Adam Starchild 

Nationality law is one of the most confusing areas of international 
jurisprudence, primarily because law on nationality in different coun- 
tries is extremely varied, based on individual histories, traditions, and 
legal concepts. 

Anyone considering acquiring more than one nationality should 
proceed in full awareness of the risk of winding up with no nationality 
at all. You must proceed with care and, in all cases, seek well quali- 
fied legal advice. Obtaining accurate information can be difficult -— 
different consulates of the same country often give different answers, 
which don't necessarily match the answers given by a citizenship 
lawyer within the country. And many countries are reluctant to give 
general information for publication. They simply answer inquiries (if 
they answer at all) by saying that every case is different and the indi- 
viduals concerned should visit the consulate and bring their docu- 
mentation. 

These difficulties are mentioned so that you will know to check 
and double check every possibility regarding your country of ancestry 
or that of your spouse. The first answer you get may not be the right 
one. 

The main effect of the international legal confusion surrounding 
second passports and dual nationality is that some people have more 
than one nationality. And some people even have more passports 
than nationalities.

THE MODERN IDENTITY CHANGER 

How to Create a New Identity for Privacy 

and Personal Freedom 

by Sheldon Charrett 

Finally, here is an all-new, up-to-date instruction book on the art 
and science of obtaining and using a complete new identity. The 
Modern Identity Changer focuses on the major pitfalls of traditional 
identity changing, while explaining current solutions and approaches 
to the inherent problems posed in this pursuit. 

Far from a slim handbook on the outmoded method of acquiring a 
deceased infant's birth certificate and using that information as a 
springboard. for a complete new identity, The Modern Identity 
Changer outlines a complete identity changing program, complete 
with step-by-step instructions and illustrations on how to go about 
acquiring a new identity in today's data-drenched society, how to pro- 
duce and manufacture the documents necessary to maintain and 
support that clandestine identity, and how to obtain credit, employ- 
ment, and banking privileges for that ersatz identity. It's all here, from 
obtaining a legitimate Social Security number, driver's license, and 
work ID to outwitting Big Brother's bureaucrats and their persistent 
demands for papers, stamps, cards, ancj tracking numbers. By study- 
ing this book, identity changers, freedom seekers, and privacy enthu- 
siasts can maintain a fresh arsenal of information in the war against 
totalitarianism . For academic study only.

ADVANCED FUGITIVE 

Running, Hiding, Surviving and Thriving Forever 

by Kenn Abaygo 

Suppose the circum- 
stances of your life forced 
you to drop out of sight for an 
extended period of time... 
imagine that you have a 
need to simply vanish and 
take on a new personality in 
some foreign city, or survive 
in a makeshift hideout in the 
wilds of the Yukon! What if 
you knew you could never 
come back? Could you do it? 
These are just a few of the 
tough questions a fugitive 
must ask himself if he is seri- 
ous about splitting the scene 
for a year, ten years, or the 
rest of his life. 

Author Kenn Abaygo has 
crafted this book to teach the 
advanced evasion tech- 
niques that other fugitives 
have used effectively to dis- 
appear and stay out of sight 
indefinitely. The reader will benefit from their mistakes and experi- 
ences, and will obtain greater understanding of the many intricacies 
involved in staging a successful evasion in any terrain, including find- 
ing a "doorman" who will show fugitives the way into the network of . 
people who are willing to assist evaders; choosing an ideal location; 
exploiting the many survival assets available at no cost to the nation's 
proverbial homeless; selecting appropriate weapons for hunting and 
self defense; taking the necessary steps to avoid being tracked, spot- 
ted, stalked, or fired upon by a sniper; and toughing it out in the wilds 
under the most severe conditions nature has to offer. If being a suc- 
cessful fugitive has suddenly become your long term ambition, con-

THE I.D. FORGER: 

Homemade Birth Certificates 

& Other Documents Explained 

by John Q. Newman 

A person intent on 
creating a new identity 
will have to come up with 
numerous types of paper 
documents such as birth 
certificates, college tran- 
scripts, degrees, refer- 
ence letters, and the like. 
It is often impossible to 
obtain real documents in 
the name of the new 
identity. This leaves the 
person who wishes to 
change identities with 
two options. The first 
option is to purchase 
false documents from 
one of the numerous pur- 
veyors who advertise in 
the national tabloids and 
magazines. False-docu- 
ment sellers can also be 
consulted on the Internet. 
The first problem with 
purchasing documents 
via this route is that the 
quality of these documents is always in doubt. The second problem is 
that many of these businesses operate outside the law controlling the 
manufacture and sale of false documents. These sellers can be 
raided by the police or FBI at any time. Even worse, the mail these 
businesses receive may be subjected to what is known as a "mail 
cover." During a mail cover, the name and return address of all incom- 
ing mail is .recorded. Those people attempting to order from the busi- 
ness would wind up with their name in an investigator's database, 
and they might face a visit from the police at a later time. 

The second option is creating their own: People wanting to estab- 
lish a new identity need to become adept at the skill of document for- 
gery in the early stages of their identity creation. These forged 
documents will allow the identity-seeker to obtain real, genuine iden- 
tity documents from government agencies and other places. A false 
birth certificate will allow the acquisition of a valid driver's license from 
a state motor vehicle department. A false transcript can be used to 
register for classes at a university, and maybe even obtain a scholar- 
ship. A fake employment reference letter can be used to obtain a 
good job in the new identity. 

A proficiency in document forgery allows the seeker of a new iden- 
tity to create the foundation of his alternate self at home, without 
drawing the attention of curious busybodies. Forgery is easily learned 
by most people, and the more a forger practices, the better the docu- 
ments that can be produced. Eventually, the diligent forger will be 
able to turn but documents that only a skilled document examiner 
could prove to be fakes, and then only after an extensive examina- 
tion. Good-quality forgeries are almost never detected by people who 
commonly examine identification documents. 

The I.D. Forger covers in step-by-step detail all of the classic and 
modern high-tech methods of forging the most commonly used iden- 
tification documents. Chapters include: 

• The uses of homemade documents • Old-fashioned 
forgery • Computer forgery • Birth certificate basics • 
Old-fashioned birth certificate forgery • Computer for- 
gery of birth certificates • Driver's license and identifica- 
tion card forgery • Social Security cards • Other 
miscellaneous document forgery • And more.

cation and false identification — sold for informational purposes only.

IDENTITY, PRIVACY,

Big Brother vs. the New Resistance 

by Sheldon Charrett 



nFNTITV 

1HMH4PL 
i ii VACY. AND 

rtnoUNHL 



From the Introduc- 
tion: 

"To ensure that no 
one steps out of line, 
Big Government uses 
modern supercomput- 
ers to hoard ridiculous 
amounts of personal 
information on citi- 
zens, who are forcibly 
sucked into the 
imploding nucleus of 
an impending catas- 
trophe. The catastro- 
phe is the inevitable 
misuse of our per- 
sonal information to 
strip us of our privacy, 
personal freedom, 
and identity. A free- 
thinking citizen is a 
bureaucrat's worst 
nightmare; a popula- 
tion of broken spirits is much less likely to throw monkey wrenches 
into the machine. 

"Fortunately, there are those among us who have seen the future. 
They have seen the nucleus of Big Brother undergo a radioactive 
decay, sparking a reaction that ultimately will cause its demise. 

'They are the members of the New Resistance. Those who have 
stood outside the machine, studied it, and seen it for what it was: an 
unloving foster parent that we never asked for yet does everything it 
can to control our lives under the threat of forceful reprisal. 

'The New Resistance gains new members every day. You may 
wish to become one after reading this book. Perhaps you already 
have."

A slowly creeping pestilence, long present in the 
land, has rapidly become a virulent plague infect- 
ing all levels of society. This plague is insidious* 
hiding itself among the benign and even disguising 
itself as the beneficial, but it is assuredly a malig- 
nant disease that if left untreated will result in the 
gravest of harm, even to the death of our very soci- 
ety and way of life. This malignant disease is gov- 
ernment surveillance, a plague upon the land. 

Year after year the government has proposed 
and implemented more and more oppressive regu- 
lations that tear at the very heart of this great 
republic. These regulations trample the Constitu- 
tion under a jack-booted foot and toll the death of 
freedom and the rightful liberties of We the Peo- 
ple! 

We need only look back a generation or two to 
see the beginning of this government surveillance 
program with the issuing of Social Security num- 
bers (SSNs) to everyone of working age. Oppo- 
nents of this governmentally assigned "national ID 
number" were assured that their fears were 
unfounded. The SSN, we were told, will only be 
used to administer the Social Security program. 



Your SSN is nothing more than an account number 
to keep track of funds contributed to your Social 
Security account. Originally Social Security cards 
were even annotated with the words "Not For 
Identification." However, as We the People began 
to accept this new "national identification num- 
ber," things began to change. The words "Not For 
Identification" quietly disappeared from our Social 
Security cards, and the SSN was adopted by the 
IRS as our taxpayer identification number. 

As of October 1, 2000, you 
must provide your SSN in 
order to be issued a driver's 
license, a fishing license, or 
even a marriage license. 

The implementation of a national identification 
number was now firmly in place. Other agencies 
and organizations began to adopt the SSN for iden- 
tification purposes. Requests for your SSN began 
to appear on forms throughout the government and

in the private sector. The SSN, which heretofore 
was not needed until you began to work and earn a 
taxable income, was now a necessity for even the 
youngest children. In fact the IRS declared that 
parents could not claim a tax exemption for their 
children unless said children had SSNs and those 
numbers were listed on the parents' tax return 
forms! 

As oppressive and intolerable as this national ID 
system was becoming, worse was yet to come. The 
federal government still could not track everyone. 
People with a desire for some degree of personal 
freedom and anonymity from Big Brother were 
still able to slip through the cracks. So, over the 
objection of the states and oyer the objections of 
We the People, the federal government passed fed- 
eral law 42 USC 666(a)(13) which requires states 
to collect an SSN as a condition of issuing any type 
of license. Some states attempted to protest this 
trampling of our freedoms, declaring the federal 
legislation "inappropriate, intrusive, and offen- 
sive." In response to this the federal government 
simply refused to provide these states with federal 
funding for assistance to the poor (funds which the 
federal government derived from the states in the 
first place) unless the states complied with this 
mandatory numbering system. As of October 1, 
2000, you must provide your SSN in order to be 
issued a driver's license, a fishing license, or even 
a marriage license! 

Yes, you read that correctly. In order to travel on 
the public highways, relax along the bank of a bab- 
bling brook, or even fall in love and get married 
you need Big Brother's national ID number (your 
SSN)! The federal government finally has a 
national ID number, issued to everyone at birth and 
following them to the grave. George Orwell's 1984 
had arrived in the year 2000. 

Although the national ID number (an abomina- 
tion to a free people) is the key that ties it all 
together, Big Brother has not been idle in other 
areas. The advent of affordable computer technol- 
ogy and the adoption of this technology by govern- 
ment agencies and private businesses created a 
number of databases containing private and per- 
sonal information about us. With the ever-increas- 
ing and mandated use of the SSN as a national ID 
number these databases are now cross-referenced 
and capable of providing a most detailed dossier 
on your private life! 



The intrusive capability of 
the federal government is 
far greater than anything 
ever dreamed up by Nazi 
Germany's Gestapo or the 
Soviet Union's KGB. 

The federal government has developed the most 
comprehensive system of tracking and electronic 
surveillance of We the People ever to exist. The 
intrusive capability of this surveillance system is 
far greater than anything ever dreamed up by Nazi 
Germany's Gestapo or the Soviet Union's KGB. 

The creation and cross-referencing of govern- 
mental and private sector databases, all of which 
are being tied together using our national identifi- 
cation numbers (our SSNs) allows Big Brother to 
cast a wide net of electronic surveillance. 

Financial Surveillance 

Big Brother wants to track your every financial 
transaction. To this end the government requires 
that you provide your national ID number (SSN) 
when establishing any type of financial account. 
The reason for this is to enable government track- 
ing of your financial transactions and has little to 
do with simply reporting tax-related information. 
To see this for yourself, go to your local bank and 
try to open a non-interest-bearing checking 
account without providing your SSN. Because the 
account draws no interest there is nothing that 
needs to be reported for tax purposes, but the bank 
will demand that you still provide your SSN as a 
condition of opening an account. You see, Big 
Brother requires your bank to spy on you! 

The Bank Secrecy Act (31 USC Section 1051 et. 
seq.) requires that your bank keep records of your 
banking transactions that "have a high degree of 
usefulness in criminal, tax, and regulatory investi- 
gations and proceedings." This of course raises the 
question as to just what these types of transactions 
might be. Well, to begin with, it is any and all 
transactions or combination of transactions involv- 
ing $10,000 or more. It is also any transaction or 
combination of transactions totaling $5,000 or 
more which "is not the sort in which a particular

customer would normally be expected to engage." 
And, it's any transaction where you take steps to 
keep your transactions below these stated limits. 
This is a crime that Big Brother calls structuring 
— kind of like getting a speeding ticket for driving 
47 miles per hour in a 50-mile-per-hour zone. 

Much of this monitoring of our banking transac- 
tions is accomplished by a computer program 
called "America's Software." According to Con- 
gressman Ron Paul (R-TX), in statements made 
before Congress on October 19, 2000, regarding 
threats to financial freedom: "The constant surveil- 
lance is accomplished, as is most privacy invasion 
these days, by a special banking computer soft- 
ware program called 'America's Software' which 
allows every transaction in any account to be 
watched constantly. It produces a daily record for 
bank officials, who now have certain obligations 
imposed by U.S. law that require the reporting of 
'suspicious activities' to federal agents." 

These reports of suspicious activity are submit- 
ted to FINCEN, the "Financial Crimes Enforce- 
ment Network." FINCEN is a network of 
computer databases and more than 140 million 
financial records maintained by the U.S. Treasury 
Department. FINCEN shares these databases with 
every office of the U.S. Attorney, the FBI, BATF, 
DEA, Secret Service, U.S. Customs and more than 
50 other departments and agencies. All of these 
agencies can use FINCEN databases to investigate 
persons of interest, and conduct fishing expedi- 
tions among the various "suspicious activity" 
reports submitted by financial institutions. 

According to FINCEN's own reports the num- 
ber of "suspicious activity" reports submitted by 
financial institutions about their customers is 
steadily increasing, and more than doubled 
between 1996 and 2000. The following chart 
shows the number of suspicious activity reports 
received by FINCEN for each year 1996-2000. 

ISM 199Z 1998 1999 2000 (first half of the year) 
49,786 81,597 96,932 120,506 100,353 

Every check you write is copied and stored in a 
database. Every credit card transaction you make 
becomes a permanent computer record. Every 
deposit you make to your accounts and every time 
you get a little cash from an ATM you add lines to 
your financial dossier. 

This ever-increasing intrusion of Big Brother 
into our financial activities tramples our 4th 



Amendment rights into the dirt, but worse is yet to 
come. 

Communications Surveillance 

The ability to track every dollar we spend isn't 
enough for the government. Big Brother wants to 
snoop into our private communications. He wants 
to track what we read and what we think! 

To this end the F.B.I, came up with a system 
called "Carnivore" to track and monitor our online 
activity and to record our private communications 
to friends, family and business associates. 

Carnivore (now upgraded and renamed 
"DCS 1000") is a black box that the F.B.I, connects 
into the network of an Internet Service Provider 
(ISP). Thereafter they (the F.B.I.) monitor traffic 
across the network from some remote location 
without further involvement from the ISP. 

Unlike traditional telephone taps which require 
a warrant and are installed with the assistance of 
the telephone company (thus providing some over- 
sight as to who is being monitored) once Carni- 
vore/DCSlOOO is in place Big Brother can monitor 
anyone or everyone on the network. Because there 
is no continued involvement by ISP personnel 
there is no one to say, "Hey, you're not supposed to 
be doing that!" 

Carnivore can monitor 
every e-mail sent over a net- 
work, and every site visited 
from that network. 

According to information obtained by the Elec- 
tronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) through 
the Freedom of Information Act, 
Carnivore/DCSlOOO can monitor every e-mail sent 
over a network, and every site visited from that 
network. To be fair, however, we should ask: Just 
because the system is capable of monitoring every 
e-mail sent across a network, does that mean that 
the F.B.I. is actually ignoring the 4th Amendment 
and monitoring the e-mail of persons other than 
the listed targets of an investigation? Unfortu- 
nately that's exactly what they seem to be doing. 
According to Associated Press (AP) reports in 
May and June 2002 concerning the 
Carnivore/DCSlOOO system installed on various 

Continued on the next page. 



2003 Main Catalog • Order Toil-Free 1-800-380-2230, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week 



35 



ISPs: "The F.B.I, software not only picked up the 
e-mails of its target but also picked up e-mails on 
non-covered targets." Simply put, Big Brother is, 
without a warrant, and with a complete disregard 
for the 4th Amendment, copying and reading your 
private, perspnal e-mail as it travels across the 
monitored network of your ISP. 

There has been significant public protest over 
Carnivore/DCSlOOO. The protest has ranged from 
advocates of personal privacy, such as myself, to 
national organizations such as the American Civil 
Liberties Union (ACLU), to the halls of Congress. 
These protests center on the F.B.I.'s failure to fully 
disclose the capabilities of Carnivore/DCSlOOO 
(secret surveillance against the American people) 
and the potential, actual and continued misuse and 
unlawful electronic monitoring of the private com- 
munications of We the People. 

Once in place, Magic 
Lantern records your key- 
strokes as you type on your 
computer keyboard. It cap- 
tures whatever you type, 
including private letters, 
passwords, account num- 
bers, etc., and when you next 
go online it secretly sends 
this file off to Big Brother. 

However, Carnivore/DCSlOOO wasn't enough 
for Big Brother. Carnivore/DCSlOOO can only cap- 
ture what you send across the Internet (i.e., e-mail 
and Web sites), but Big Brother wants to know 
what you are writing off-line and storing on your 
personal computer at home. To this end the F.B.I. 
came up with project Magic Lantern. 

Magic Lantern is a computer virus (well. . . actu- 
ally a Trojan horse) that Big Brother uses to infect 
your computer. Once in place Magic Lantern 
records your keystrokes as you type on your com- 
puter keyboard. It captures whatever you type, 
including private letters, passwords, account num- 
bers, etc., and when you next go online it secretly 
sends this file off to Big Brother. 



At least one company that 
makes anti-virus software, 
McAfee Corp., contacted the 
F.B.I, to ensure its software 
would not detect the 
Bureau's snooping software. 

Now you may think that your anti-virus soft- 
ware would catch this type of trick — after all 
that's what it's designed to do. Unfortunately, the 
anti-virus companies have been co-opted by the 
government to weaken their anti- virus software so 
that it will not detect Magic Lantern. According to 
a November 23, 2001 Washington Post article: At 
least one company that makes anti- virus software, 
McAfee Corp., contacted the F.B.I, to ensure its 
software wouldn't detect the Bureau's snooping 
software. 

Even the F.B.I, admits that 
Digital Storm will result in a 
300% increase in electronic 
surveillance over the next 10 
years as the system is fully 
developed and put into 
place. 

But Big Brother isn't through yet. There is also 
project Digital Storm. Digital Storm will bring the 
F.B.I.'s electronic surveillance capability (i.e., 
wiretaps, Carnivore/DCSlOOO, Magic Lantern, et. 
al.) along with access to commercial records 
(credit reports, driver's records, real estate records, 
etc.) into one giant system for the covert surveil- 
lance of We the People! 

Even the F.B.I, admits that Digital Storm will 
result in a 300% increase in electronic surveillance 
over the next 10 years as the system is fully devel- 
oped and put into place. If Big Brother is admitting 
to a 300% increase of covert electronic surveil- 
lance of the American people we can reasonably 
assume that the real number is much greater than 
300%!

When Thomas Jefferson scribed the words of 
the Declaration of Independence he clearly set 
forth the principles of the powers of government 
for this great republic, stating: ". . .governments are 
instituted among Men, deriving their just powers 
from the consent of the governed." When it comes 
to Carnivore/DCSlOOO, Magic Lantern, Digital 
Storm and other secret monitoring of the private 
communications of the American people, Big 
Brother is clearly acting without the consent of the 
governed! 

The Patriot Act 

On September 11, 2001, terrorists attacked the 
United States, killing thousands and destroying the 
World Trade Center in New York. Congress moved 
quickly to pass legislation in response to this 
attack and one month later the President signed 
into law the Patriot Act. The Patriot Act was 
passed by a large majority in both the House and 
the Senate, without time for review or debate. It 
was a knee-jerk reaction to the terrorist attacks. No 
politician wanted to be seen as being weak on ter- 
rorism, and Big Brother loaded the bill with pro- 
posals for some of the most intrusive surveillance 
capabilities ever dreamied up by any government 
agency, with no regard for the Constitution and the 
freedoms and rightful liberties of the American 
people. 

The Patriot Act was a 
dream for Big Brother and a 
nightmare for free people. 

This Patriot Act was a dream for Big Brother 
and a nightmare for free people. It massively 
expanded the surveillance and covert activity 
potential of government agents against the Ameri- 
can people. It removes judicial discretion in the 
issuance of warrants for electronic monitoring. Big 
Brother does not even need probable cause to 
obtain a warrant anymore. A warrant must now be 
issued if the government will merely certify that 
"information likely to be obtained by such installa- 
tion and use is relevant to an ongoing criminal 
investigation." 



In reviewing the Patriot Act, the Electronic 
Frontier Foundation (www.eff.org), an organiza- 
tion focusing on personal privacy and individual 
rights, stated: "The civil liberties of ordinary 
Americans have taken a tremendous blow with this 
law, especially the right to privacy in our online 
communications and activities. Yet there is no evi- 
dence that our previous civil liberties posed a bar- 
rier to the effective tracking or prosecution of 
terrorists. In fact, in asking for these broad new 
powers, the government made no showing that the 
previous powers of law enforcement and intelli- 
gence agencies to spy on U.S. citizens were insuf- 
ficient to allow them to investigate and prosecute 
acts of terrorism." 

Several cities across the 
nation are passing resolu- 
tions that state that the 
Patriot Act is a threat to the 
rights and freedoms of the 
American people. 

Gregory T. Nojeim, Associate Director of the 
ACLU's Washington Office, stated: "These new 
and unchecked powers could be used against 
American citizens who are not under criminal 
investigation, immigrants who are here within our 
borders legally and also against those whose First 
Amendment activities are deemed to be threats to 
national security by the Attorney General." 

However, it's not just organizations focusing on 
personal privacy and civil liberties that find the 
Patriot Act to be a threat. According to a July 1, 
2002, ABC News report, several cities across the 
nation are passing resolutions that state that the 
Patriot Act is a threat to the rights and freedoms of 
the American People. These cities include Cam- 
bridge and Amherst, MA, Ann Arbor, MI, Denver, 
CO, Berkeley, CA, and others. As an example of 
the wording of these resolutions, the Cambridge, 
MA resolution states in part: "We believe these 
civil liberties [freedom of speech, assembly and 
privacy; equality before the law; due process; and 
freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures] 
are now threatened by the USA Patriot Act."

The rights and freedoms 
we surrender today will be 
lost forever. 

The creeping pestilence of government surveil- 
lance against the American people has finally 
become a virulent plague. 

What Can You Do? 

The first and most important step in countering 
this plague of surveillance and intrusion into our 
private lives is to realize that it exists and that it is 
a clear and present danger to the rightful liberties 
and freedoms of We the People. Stay aware of the 
conduct of our public servants and government 
agencies and make others aware of their actions. If 
we enlighten the people generally, tyranny and 
oppression will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn 
of day. 

Contact your elected officials and demand that 
they take action to stop the covert surveillance of 
the American people by Big Brother run amok. 
Some will say that it does little good to write and 
call government bureaucrats, and this may be true, 
but if you don't protest the shredding of the Con- 
stitution you are in no position to complain when 
your rights are taken away. Furthermore, when 
enough of us voice our concerns and demand that 
our public servants uphold their oaths to support 
and defend the Constitution some of them just 
might listen, especially during an election year. It's 
also important to remember that there are good 
men in government. By bringing matters to the 
attention of these men it is often possible to get 
them to take action. 

Make a habit of not disclosing your SSN. Your 
SSN has become a "national ID number" and is the 
key that ties Big Brother's databases together. Just 
because some form has a space for your SSN does- 
n't mean that you have to provide it. If dealing 
with the government, require that they provide 
their specific authority for collecting your SSN 
and that they disclose to you how that information 
will be used. Make them provide you with Privacy 
Act disclosure information every time you disclose 
your SSN. 

Deal in cash whenever possible. In those cases 
where cash is not an option (such as sending larger 



amounts of money through the mail) use less trace- 
able instruments such as postal money orders. 
Remember that financial institutions are required 
to spy on their customers, reporting your actions to 
Big Brother. Every time you conduct a financial 
transaction you add another line to your financial 
profile, unless you conduct those transactions in 
cash! 

Encrypt. Encrypt. Encrypt. Use high-level 
encryption programs (such as PGP available for 
free at: http://web.mit.edu/network/pgp.html) to 
secure your online communications. Encrypted e- 
mail should be the standard rather than the excep- 
tion. If your e-mail is encrypted it makes little 
difference if it is captured by Carnivore/DCSlOOO 
or some other online surveillance system. Big 
Brother can't read it if it's encrypted! Use other e- 
security techniques such as anonymous remailers 
(http://anon.efga.org/Remailers), and proxy serv- 
ers such as Anonymizer (http://www.anonymizer.- 
com/). These security techniques are discussed in 
detail in my books The Complete Guide to E-Secu- 
rity and Freeware Encryption and Security Pro- 
grams. 

We must never surrender our essential liberties 
in the name of temporary safety; In the words of 
Benjamin Franklin, "Those who would give up 
essential liberty to purchase a little temporary 
safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." 

We must stand ever vigilant to safeguard our 
rightful liberty and freedoms, even when this 
means safeguarding against the encroachment of 
Big Brother and over-zealous government agen- 
cies run amok. The rights and freedoms we surren- 
der today will be lost forever.*

SNITCH 

A Handbook For Informers 

by Jack Luger 

Every day in the USA, 
there are more laws and 
more law-breakers, and 
more people willing to pay 
cash to find law-breakers. 
Federal, state and local 
governments; business 
and citizen groups; pri- 
vate detectives and insur- 
ance agencies — all pay 
quick cash for the right 
information. 

In fact, you can 
become a professional 
informer, developing 
information for a living, if 
you know how. The IRS 
pays out a percentage of 
taxes collected from tips. 
The DEA hands over 
money seized from drug 
dealers. And the Federal 
Government will pay up to 
hundreds of thousands of 
dollars for advance notice 
of an assassination attempt! 

In Snitch: A Handbook for Informers, Jack Luger tells you what 
information is valuable, how to gather it, and how to sell it. He shows 
you how to snitch and collect completely anonymously. He details 
how crooks negotiate their way out of prison sentences, how cops 
treat informers, and how to keep from being f inked-out yourself.

THE PUZZLE PALACE 

Inside The National Security Agency, 

America's Most Secret 

Intelligence Organization 

by James Bamford 

The National Security Agency (NSA) is the most secret agency 
within the US Government. For many years the government denied 
that it even existed. It was established not by law but by a top secret 
presidential memorandum that has been seen by only a very few offi- 
cials. Yet it is many times larger than the CIA, spends billions of dol- 
lars more per year, and its director is the most powerful official in the 
American intelligence community. 

In the three decades since Truman secretly created the agency in 
1952, the NSA has managed to elude publicity to an extraordinary 
degree. Now, in the first book ever written on the National Security 
Agency, James Bamford traces its origins, details its inner workings 
and exposes its far-flung operations. 

He describes the city of fifty thousand people and nearly twenty 
buildings that is the Fort Meade headquarters of the NSA — where 
there are close to a dozen underground acres of computers, where a 
significant part of the world's communications are monitored, and 
where reports from a number of sophisticated satellite eavesdropping 
systems are analyzed. He also gives a detailed account of NSA's 
complex network of listening posts — both in the United States and 
throughout much of the rest of the world.

THE FIRST AMENDMENT AND CIVIL LIABILITY 
by Robert M. O'Neil 

In this book, the 
distinguished First 
Amendment scholar 
Robert M. O'Neil con- 
fronts the new threats 
to free expression 
posed by civil liability 
suits brought against 
the media. Until very 
recently, publishers 
and media producers 
had assumed that — 
with a few exceptions 
such as libel — ■ free- 
dom of expression 
was absolute and pro- 
tected from civil liabil- 
ity claims in the form 
of damage awards. 

In the late 1990s, 
these complacent 
assumptions were 
sharply challenged. 
The case of the Hit 
Man manual signaled 
the shift. After a hired 
assassin had been 
convicted of a brutal murder in a Washington, D.C., suburb, it was 
revealed that he had made use of a book that contained graphic, 
detailed instructions on how to carry out an execution. When the fam- 
ily of the victims sued the publisher for wrongful death, a federal 
appeals court ruled that the book was "not protected speech" since its 
apparent purpose was "to facilitate murder." A publisher was thus, for 
the very first time, potentially liable for criminal acts committed by a 
reader of one of its books. 

Later cases, especially a suit against Oliver Stone, producer of the 
violent film Natural Born Killers, have invoked this ruling in seeking to 
impose liability on those who create and distribute material that 
"causes" others to inflict injury or death. 

O'Neil looks at seven areas where free expression is now at risk of 
incurring civil liability: libel and slander (including a separate analysis 
of libel on the Internet), privacy (paparazzi and others who intrude), 
defective or dangerous "products," incitement (the claim of a link 
between speech and criminal acts, as in the Natural Born Killers 
case), advertising, news-gathering (for example the Food Lion/ABC 
Primetime Live case), and threats and incitement on the Internet (as 
in the anti-abortion Nuremberg Web site case). 

The author's clear exposition and analysis illuminate the issues for 

a broad range of readers concerned about a host of new threats to, 

and the limits of, free expression. This is a very important book — one 

that should be read by every lover of freedom of speech.

THE STATE VS. THE PEOPLE 

The Rise of the American Police State 

by Claire Wolfe and Aaron Zelman 

For years, Claire Wolfe and 
Aaron Zelman have been two of 
the most passionate and articu- 
late defenders of individual 
freedom in America. We are 
very happy to see these two 
heroes join forces to produce 
this truly chilling volume. 

From the Foreword: "Free- 
dom is slipping out of our 
hands. In the United States 
people are losing ancient legal 
rights. We are searched without 
warrants, forced to give evi- 
dence against ourselves, 
denied the right to self-protec- 
tion, and prosecuted for our 
points of view. Our assets are 
brutally confiscated. Some of us 
are denied jury trials, tried twice 
for the same deed, or impris- 
oned entirely without charges. 
"We are under surveillance whenever we bank, drive the high- 
ways, or enter a public place. Our most private records are available 
for inspection by authorities. We must get permission to perform ordi- 
nary tasks. Hospitals give government ID numbers to our children at 
birth. Schools subject our children to arbitrary searches; they drug, 
expel — and sometimes even arrest — children whose thoughts or 
demeanor don't convey proper submission. 

"Every day we pick up the newspaper, click onto a Web site, or 
tune in our televisions to learn of another no-knock SWAT raid, 
another death at the hands of police, another act of official brutality or 
corruption, another outrage going unpunished solely because the 
perpetrator is a member of the elite. Laws and regulations choke us 
until we can scarcely breathe, let alone breathe free. 

"This book asks the question: Ms America becoming a police 
state?' That is not quite the same as asking, Is America becoming a 
dictatorship?' or Ms America becoming a tyrannical state?' Tyranny, 
dictatorships, and police states are related. But a police state is a dis- 
tinctive form of government. 

"In Chapter One we define the characteristics of police states and 
trace the history of this form of government. Throughout, as we exam- 
ine how America is being altered and becoming less free, historic 
police states serve as a point of reference. The similarities are chill- 
ing. A police state is brutal, yes. But it is also persuasive. Its premises 
seem reasonable, its actions necessary for the good of all. That is 
precisely why it is such a danger to us. In the following 13 chapters 
you will see, in detail, the way the United States is fulfilling the police 
state model, all in the name of social betterment or security. It's not a 
pleasant picture. But if we are to have any hope of undoing the dam- 
age, of winning back our freedoms, we must understand the means 
by which we are losing them."

THE SHADOW GOVERNMENT 

9-1 1 and State Terror 

by Len Bracken 

Did the U.S. Government want the 9- 
1 1 attacks to occur? The Shadow Gov- 
ernment presents the. alarming evidence 
that nation-states actively engage in ter- 
ror, and also passively allow terror to be 
visited upon their citizens. It is not just lib- 
eration movements and radical groups 
that deploy terrorist tactics for offensive 
ends. States use terror defensively to 
directly intimidate their citizens, and to 
indirectly attack themselves or harm their 
citizens under a false flag. Their motiva- 
tion? To provide pretexts for otherwise 
unwanted wars, or to gain increased 
police powers. Statesmen have executed 
indirect terrorism in various ways, but most plots tend to involve the 
pretense of blind eyes, misdirection, and cover-ups that give the 
statesmen plausible deniability. The sinking of the Lusitiania, the 
bombing of Pearl Harbor, the October Surprise, the first World Trade 
Center bombing, the Oklahoma City bombing and other well-known 
incidents suggest that terrorism is often successfully used by states 
to take the offensive against enemies at home and abroad. 

Was 9-11 such an indirect defensive attack? Author Len Bracken 
traces the clues circumstantially connecting a multi-armed hydra of oil 
interests, the CIA, FBI, diplomats and statesmen to the September 11 
attacks and examines whether they were engineered or allowed as a 
pretext for the war in Afghanistan. The subsequent anthrax attack tar- 
geting Democratic senators is considered in light of the controversial 
USA Patriot Act's rights-encroaching measures and the act's easy 
passage under conditions of terror. A shadow government appears to 
have covered the land like black ice.

AGENTS OF REPRESSION 

The FBI's Secret Wars 

Against the Black Panther Party 

and the American Indian Movement 

by Ward Churchill and Jim Wander Wall 

From the Red Scare of 1919-1920 to the McCarthy period of the 
1950s to the GOINTELPRO (Counterintelligence Program) era of the 
1960s, the FBI has operated primarily as America's political police. 
Set against this sordid background, the complex of FBI operations 
conducted against the Black Panther Party and the American Indian 
Movement, including murder, kidnapping, and a range of other illegal 
activities, provides a shocking indictment of the lawlessness of the 
"law enforcers." 

Profusely illustrated and indexed, Agents of Repression is the 
benchmark text for those concerned with understanding not only what 
happened to the Black Panthers and the American Indian Movement, 
but the functional reality of America's political police. 

Contrary to official announcements that COINTELPRO-type activ- 
ities ended in 1971, the authors demonstrate that the FBI not only 
continued them, but in some cases actually increased their levels of 
intensity and violence. Agents of Repression concludes with consid- 
eration of recent FBI attempts to disrupt or destroy the Puerto Rican 
Independence movement and the Central America sanctuary and sol- 
idarity movements. The mentality and operational priorities of the FBI 
have remained constant despite the supposed "reforms" it underwent 
during the late 1970s. In light of the Homeland Security Act, a meas- 
ure which formally sanctions many of the worst abuses in which the 
Bureau engaged a generation ago, every activist in the country 
should become intimately acquainted with the experiences of the 
Black Panther Party and the American Indian Movement.

UNDERGROUND RAILROAD 

Practical Advice for Finding Passengers, 

Getting Them to Safety, and Staying One Step 

Ahead of the Tyrants 

by Jefferson Mack 

Many times in history, individuals dedicated to freedom have 
risked everything to help desperate people fleeing unjust persecution. 
In the United States in the 1800s, the term Underground Railroad was 
coined to describe the network of citizens dedicated to helping those 
who had been enslaved in the South find freedom in the North and in 
Canada. In the 21st century, though slavery has been abolished, 
there are still injustices, cases in which the law of the land conflicts 
with the God-given rights of American citizens. And fortunately there 
are still those who will stand up and help those fugitives find safety 
and freedom in another place, perhaps under another name. 

Jefferson Mack believes that, given a chance, there are many 
Americans willing to take that stand, and it is for them that he has writ- 
ten this blueprint for justice. Underground Railroad gives the aver- 
age citizen the information he or she needs to help unjustly accused 
fugitives to safety. In this eye-opening guide, you will learn how to 
organize an underground railroad, spread the word through the 
grapevine, find and maintain safe houses, build networks of like- 
minded friends, and establish the all-important security features, 
including how to assess a potential "passenger's" suitability and spot 
ringers. You will even learn what to do if you need to take flight your- 
self. This book is a vital addition to the library of any true American 
sickened by the sad decline of justice in "the land of the free."

STOLEN LIVES 

Killed by Law Enforcement 

Second Edition 

Now Documenting over 2,000 Cases 

These victims of brutal police cannot 
speak for themselves, but we can and we 
will. There is a nationwide epidemic of 
police brutality in the United States. 
Stolen Lives provides important and 
compelling exposures of police brutality 
and murder. People who've been killed, 
their families and loved ones, and com- 
munities under the gun speak through 
these pages and tell their stories. Among 
people who don't deal with police brutal- 
ity in their daily lives, this book shows 
that it's more than just a "few bad apples" 
or some "isolated incidents." Many such 
people will be moved to join the struggle against police brutality and 
stand with those under the gun when they see the shocking scope of 
this epidemic. 

The government is not informing the public of the true extent of 
police killings. People are shot and killed with little or no provocation. 
They die from choke holds, hog-tying, pepper-spray, beatings and 
high speed car chases. They die on the streets, in their own homes, 
on the border, in jails and prisons. The officers involved are almost 
never indicted, prosecuted, or punished in any way. When media 
report on cases of police brutality, they generally rely almost exclu- 
sively on police reports. Police generally say they had "no choice but 
to shoot." Many family members say that their loved ones are killed 
twice: first by the police and then by the press. Often the media does 
not seek out eyewitnesses or family members for their side of the 
story. When the media reports only what the police have to say and 
fail to do a thorough investigation, this keeps the public from learning 
the true extent of police brutality. Stolen Lives breaks this wall of 
silence.

THE SAFE HOUSE 

Setting Up and Running Your Own Sanctuary 

by Jefferson Mack 

The Safe House is a must for 
anyone who needs to lie low — for 
a while, or forever. If you or some- 
one you know is being stalked by 
the law, an angry ex, or an 
overzealous business rival, this 
book gives you the wherewithal to 
get out of cheap motels and hide 
safely in a nondescript home. 

In easy-to-understand terms, 
this book details precisely how 
you can set up and run a safe 
house, even if you have no experi- 
ence. You'll get crucial information 
on: • Deciding if a safe house is for 
you • How to detect visual and 
electronic surveillance • How to 
throw nosy neighbors or law 
enforcement officers off the track • 
How to set up a situation with fake 
ID and false premises • What makes a good safe house. 

For those who require a haven right away, and can't afford to 
make a mistake, The Safe House could be the most valuable 
resource around. If you value your life, that is.

INVISIBLE RESISTANCE TO TYRANNY 

How to Lead a Secret Life of Insurgency in an 

Increasingly Unfree World 

by Jefferson Mack 



How to Lead a Secret 

Life of Insurgency in an 

Increasingly Unfree World 



RESISTANCE II 




What is invisible resistance to 
tyranny? 

It is an underground movement 
of secret freedom fighters, each act- 
ing individually and independently to 
ignore, evade, resist, and thwart the 
increasingly heavy hand of govern- 
ment power. Invisible resisters do 
not join protest groups, stand on 
street corners making speeches, or 
run with a mob throwing rocks at 
police vehicles. Rather, they make 
up a collective silent insurgency that 
tyrants won't be able to put down 
because they won't be able to find it. 
Government enforcers will fruitlessly 
look for organizations with no mem- 
bers, commanders who aren't there, 
secret headquarters that don't exist, 
and couriers that carry no messages. 

Invisible Resistance to Tyranny is both a manifesto and manual 
for everyday citizens who are alarmed by the never-ending encroach- 
ment upon the individual freedoms recognized {not "granted") in the 
Bill of Rights and who want to do something about it now before it 
comes down to a choice between violent revolution or total submis- 
sion. It outlines a progressive program of resistance that anyone can 
undertake without having to protest in the streets, go on hunger 
strikes, or take up arms. 

For anyone living in a country where the authorities limit every- 
one's civil liberties while increasing their own perks and power, 
engaging in invisible resistance can be a giant step toward achieving 
greater freedom now and in the future. Read this book. You have 
nothing to lose but your chains.

Do you have a private life? If 
you think you do, you may have 
to think again. The World Wide 
Web poses a threat to the per- 
sonal privacy and rights of all of 
us — whether or not we use a 
computer. Our financial and 
confidential details are stored 
on hundreds of computers and 
most are vulnerable to being 
hacked via the phone line. Cor- 
porations monitor our online 
activity, building consumer pro- 
files so they can manipulate our 
spending. Governments are 
currently spying on our e-mails, 
telephone conversations, and 
faxes, using the latest technol- 
ogy. Even our most intimate 
moments are vulnerable — hid- 
den "webcams" broadcast from 
public toilets and changing rooms to Internet pay sites, catering to the 
dubious needs of "cyber-voyeurs." In this book, Andrew Gauntlett 
shows how the Internet is a double-edged sword; offering untold ben- 
efits, and posing dangers that have yet to be addressed by compa- 
nies, the media, or governments. Net Spies assumes no knowledge 
of computers, but offers hints and tips on how to safeguard your pri-

Government, big business, and common thieves are monitoring 
your every move, every purchase, every visit to the doctor, and every 
phone call. Your safety and financial security depend on your ability to 
regain your privacy. Strangers now know more about you than you do. 
With twenty-first century technology you leave an electronic trail 
wherever you go. Your personal information is stored, analyzed and

steal your name, your credit, your medical history and your good rep- 
utation. 

You can and must protect yourself! Current laws protecting privacy 
are completely inadequate. Government has a vested interest in 
reducing, not increasing our rights to privacy protection. This book

• Taking yourself off mailing lists and other databases • 
Keeping your financial transactions completely private • 
Preventing big business and bureaucrats from gather- 
ing more data about you • Surfing the Internet anony- 
mously • Protecting your identity, your credit and your 
physical safety by small changes in your daily routines

THE CIA'S BLACK OPS 

Covert Action, Foreign Policy, and Democracy 

by John Jacob Nutter, Ph.D. 

Since 1947, the Central Intelligence Agency has secretly worked 
to subvert foreign powers and overthrow enemy governments to fur- 
ther US influence abroad. The vast array of CIA black operations — 
black ops — includes covert wars against Saddam Hussein, secret 
missions to the Afghan mujahedin, the Nicaraguan contra war, the 
overthrow of Guatamalan leaders, assassination plots against Castro 
and others, domestic and foreign narcotics conspiracies, under- 
ground Mafia relations, and even controversial plans to dupe top US 
officials. Black ops have stretched the agency's influence far beyond 
its original purpose. The CIA's Black Ops explains the many and var- 
ied types of covert action — subsidies, graymail, propaganda, psy- 
chological operations, economic warfare, military support, 
paramilitary operations, coups d'etat, and assassinations — and pro- 
vides detailed examples of successes and failures undertaken in the 
name of "national security." This book reveals how the United States 
has become too enamored with covert action; how black ops have 
often substituted for US foreign policy; and how, during the cold war, 
the CIA developed into a policy maker, dangerously independent of 
the government that created it. 

This unique volume analyzes the issues involved in assassination, 
secret and private armies, clandestine economic warfare, the 
exploitation of the CIA by American corporations, and the power of the 
CIA in a democratic society and ties these issues together to create a 
lens through which the reader can view covert action and its relation- 
ship to the larger issues of American foreign policy and democratic 
principles. Unusual and exclusive, this is a courageous and unprece- 
dented declassification and analysis of foreign exploits and domestic 
secrets, covering clandestine activities from the birth of special oper- 
ations to today's underground action and illustrating how CIA covert 
action, in attempting to subvert oppositional governments, succeeded 
in subverting American democracy.

MASS CONTROL 

Engineering Human Consciousness 

by Jim Keith 

Here stands the New Man. His concep- 
tion of reality is a dance of electronic 
images fired into his forebrain, a gossamer 
construction of his masters, designed so 
that he will not — under any circumstances 
— perceive the actual. His happiness is 
delivered to him through a tube or an elec- 
tronic connection. His God lurks behind an 
electronic curtain; when the curtain is 
pulled away, we find the CIA sorcerer, the 
media manipulator... 

• From the first stirrings of the psycho- 
logical and technological control of human- 
ity at the turn of this century, to the creation 
of an education system intended to dumb 
students down rather than teach them • 
From the creation of the CIA and secret societies of the elite, to mass 
drugging of the population • From the use of subliminal persuasion, to 
the creation of cults of control • Finally, to the invention of top secret 
mind control devices with capabilities far beyond anything that the 
media has ever revealed to ah unsuspecting public • All of this and 
more is told in this thoroughly documented history of the control of 
mankind. 

Mass Control carefully and thoroughly exposes the secret plans 

to dominate world consciousness, and to put the reins of control in the 

hands of a few. In the pages of this book we see exposed a century of 

corruption, and the strange pieces of the puzzle are put in place. 

Finally, the terrifying hidden history of world control makes sense.

RAW DEAL 

Horrible and Ironic Stories 

of Forgotten Americans 

by Ken Smith 

Remember William Sidis, 
Frank Olson, Sarah Win- 
nemucca? Of course you 
don't. They are just three vic- 
tims who suffered outrageous 
misfortune due to American 
greed, callousness and 
shortsighted thinking and 
were unceremoniously for- 
gotten. 

In Raw Deal, Ken Smith 
tells the stories of twenty-two 
Americans who, despite their 
positive attitudes, suffered 
wretched fates. Americans 
like: William Sidis, a brilliant 
scientist who anticipated the 
discovery of black holes who 
was terrorized by his parents, 
the press and the academic 
community until he worked a 
series of anonymous menial 
jobs and died of a brain hem- 
orrhage at 46; Frank Olson, who was unwittingly sent on a govern- 
ment-sponsored LSD trip and never returned, hurling himself through 
a 10-story window; Sarah Winnemucca, a Paiute Tribe leader who 
negotiated survival necessities for her people from a stingy and dis- 
honest government, opened a school,- wrote books and lectured 
across the country. She died a lonely, diseased death after her U.S. 
agents snatched the last of her livelihood. 

When you're about to be overcome by the self-affirming, ego- 
inflating, America-is-a-happy-place hogwash that permeates our cul- 
ture, read Raw Dealior the unsettling truth about the way Americans 
really treat each other.

THE MANIPULATED MIND 

Brainwashing, Conditioning and Indoctrination 

by Denise Winn 

This is the single finest book we 
have ever seen on "brainwashing." 
Ever since American prisoners of 
war in Korea suddenly switched 
sides to the Communist cause, the 
concept of brainwashing has contin- 
ued to fascinate and confuse. Is it 
really possible to force any thinking 
person to act in a way completely 
alien to his character? What makes 
so-called brainwashing so different 
from the equally insidious effects of 
indoctrination and conditioning, or 
even advertising and education? 

Research findings from psychol- 
ogy show that brainwashing is not a 
special subversive technique; it is 
the clever manipulation of unrealized 
influences that operate in all our lives. This book, by breaking down 
so-called brainwashing to its individual elements, shows how social 
conditioning, need for approval, emotional dependency and much 
else that we are unaware of, prevent us from being as self directed as 
we think; and conversely, which human traits make us the least sus- 
ceptible to subtle influence. We are all "brainwashed" every day and 
this book can help you to recognize the ways and protect yourself. 
Highly recommended.

MAXIMIZING HARM 

Losers and Winners in the Drug War 

by Stephen Young 

Debate about the drug war has 
increased since the film Traffic was 
released. While the movie asks some 
interesting questions, it just scratches 
the surface compared to this newly 
released book. According to the author, 
American drug prohibition is worse than 
a failure — it's a monumental boondog- 
gle that hurts common citizens and 
increases the problems associated with 
drugs. 

From the first page of this brief, but 
information-packed book, prohibition is 
dissected with logic and facts. It starts 
with the current state of the drug war, 
but goes on to show how this situation 
isn't just a modern anomaly. Without getting too technical, Maximiz- 
ing Harm offers economic and historical perspectives illustrating the 
inherent flaws of trying to control drug use by outlawing drugs. 

While some groups are targeted more often than others, the book 
makes a firm case that most Americans are hurt in some way. Consti- 
tutional rights have taken a beating in the drug war, and many dis- 
turbing cases of innocent people who have been killed or brutalized in 
the battle are detailed. 

From the losers, the book moves to the winners. Billions of dollars 
and other benefits are at stake. Politicians, business interests, law 
enforcement and other government agencies scramble to get their 
piece, and Maximizing Harm shows how they do it. 

A quick and engrossing read, Maximizing Harm offers a broad 
overview with specific details to show the time has passed to wring 
our hands about the endemic misery of the drug war. It's time to stop 
it.

THE POLICEMAN IS YOUR FRIEND 

AND OTHER LIES 

by Ned Beaumont 

America is a society built upon lies, supported by lies, and dedi- 
cated to promoting lies. In this astoundingly revealing look at the 
deceptions that are perpetrated upon us from infancy to old age, 
author Ned Beaumont peels away the fabric of deception and unveils 
the hidden untruths that enslave us and poison our perceptions. 

Policemen, bureaucrats, teachers, politicians, lawyers, financiers, 
military leaders — they are all part of the insidious system of disinfor- 
mation and manipulation that distorts our most basic freedoms and 
beliefs, and molds us into unthinking minions of the entrenched power 
structure which exists only to profit from our loss. Beaumont exposes 
the lies that perpetuate this evil misinterpretation of truth and grind us 
down into mindless fodder for the heartless conspiracy which desires 
only to enthrall us and control our every action and desire. 

The sneering cops on the beat, the robotic federal agents who 
slaughter innocent civilians in their beds, the condescending judges 
who dole out decades of jail time for petty offenses, the narrow- 
minded teachers who do their best to snuff out creativity and 
resourcefulness — these are the liars and deceivers who have fas- 
tened themselves to our necks like obscene vampires in search of an 
ongoing supply of free sustenance. They deserve to be exposed, 
ridiculed, and replaced — and Beaumont has begun this process by 
providing this work. 

Read this book — and be free at last!

ELUSIVE INNOCENCE 

Survival Guide for the Falsely Accused 

by Dean Tong 

With the rise in divorce and child custody battles, child abuse 
charges (oftentimes false) have become the weapon of choice. These 
false accusations rip families apart and leave a long line of destruc- 
tion in their path. Elusive Innocence gives those falsely accused the 
means for countering and defeating abuse allegations. According to 
the National Center for Child Abuse and Neglect, there were one mil- 
lion confirmed reports in 1998 — of these, 71% were unfounded and 
false. If abuse did not happen, we must not allow emotions, politics, 
and hysteria to get the best of us. We must not treat non-abused chil- 
dren as real abuse victims. 

Elusive Innocence aids those unjustly accused, defense attor- 
neys, social workers, therapists, guardians-ad-litem, police officers, 
teachers, prosecutors, judges, legislators, et aL, navigate the 
labyrinth of false accusations. From fighting false allegations of child 
abuse and domestic violence to problems and solutions, dos and 
don'ts, ten appendices, including how to choose your attorney, a look 
at science in the courtroom, a critical view of alleged medical findings, 
interrogatories of false accusers, and an investigative flow chart, 
wrongly accused victims and their attorneys are armed with state-of- 
the-art defense tactics for litigation. 

Be Forewarned! Be Forearmed! If unjustly accused, do not let 
innocence settle on the horizon. Do not let your case vacillate and 
meet its demise because innocence is elusive. It does not have to be. 
Reclaim your good name, your children, and your rights. Read Elu- 
sive Innocence today.

INFORMATION WARFARE 

Cyberterrorism: 

Protecting Your Personal Security 

in the Electronic Age 

Second Edition 

by Winn Schwartau 

The existence, possibilities, and vulnerabilities discussed in Infor- 
mation Warfare have been rigorously studied. Today, this modern, 
largely unrecognized cyberwar costs American taxpayers an esti- 
mated $100-300,000,000 per year, through: 

• Industrial Espionage 

• Hackers and Cyberpunks 

• Malicious Software and Viruses 

• Data Eavesdropping 

• Code Breaking and Chipping 

• Attacks on Personal Privacy 

• HERF Guns, EMP/T Bombs and Magnetic Weaponry 

• Binary Schizophrenia. 

In Information Warfare, information security analyst and author 
Winn Schwartau strains the high hopes and hucksterish hype of the 
"information superhighway" through an analytical sieve of great 
insight, and provides a clear examination of the inherent dangers 
posed by such a vast, uncharted electronic network. 

Information Warfare explains that cyberterrorists can easily 
invade and modify unsuspecting citizens' credit reports, bank 
accounts, driving records, plane reservations, and many other facets 
of modern computerized daily life. In theory, such irresponsible med- 
dlers could bring the stock exchange to a halt! Nothing is safe or 
secure. Our high-tech vulnerabilities are clearly detailed, and the hor- 
rifying possibilities are outlined. 

The concerns and capabilities of the future can best be addressed 
through the continued sharing of information and insights between 
the private and public sectors, and the hard work of individuals who 
are dedicated to furthering this process. Information Warfare con- 
tributes admirably to those ends, and is a book that should be read by 
anyone who cares about creating a more secure world.

BLUEBIRD 

Deliberate Creation of Multiple Personality 

by Psychiatrists 

by Colin A. Ross, M.D. 

From the introduction: "The 
major goal of the Cold War 
mind control programs was to 
create dissociative symptoms 
and disorders, including full 
multiple personality disorder. 
The Manchurian Candidate is 
fact, not fiction, and was cre- 
ated by the CIA in the 1950s 
under BLUEBIRD and ARTI- 
CHOKE mind control pro- 
grams. Experiments with LSD, 
sensory deprivation, electro- 
convulsive treatment, brain 
electrode implants and hypno- 
sis were designed to create 
amnesia, depersonalization, 
changes in identity and altered 
states of consciousness. The 
purpose of this book is to 
prove that the creation of con- 
trolled dissociation was a 
major goal of mind control research. 

"Because the subject matter of this book is likely to provoke 
extreme reactions, I have taken great care to present only facts which 
are fully documented and based on objective, public domain informa- 
tion. 

"Bluebird blows the whistle on extensive political abuse of psychi- 
atry in North America in the second half of the twentieth century. 
Many thousands of prisoners and mental patients were subjected to 
unethical mind controlexperiments by leading psychiatrists and med- 
ical schools. Organized academic psychiatry has never acknowl- 
edged this history. The network of mind control doctors involved in 
BLUEBIRD has done a great deal of harm to the field of psychiatry 
and to psychiatric patients. My goal is to break the ugly silence."

HAARP 

The Ultimate Weapon of the Conspiracy 

by Jerry E. Smith 

The HAARP project in Alaska is 
one of the most controversial proj- 
ects ever undertaken by the US 
government. This futuristic technol- 
ogy covers everything from super- 
beam weapons to worldwide 
mind-control devices. HAARP has 
many possible scientific and mili- 
tary applications, from raising a 
planetary defense shield to peering 
deep within the earth. Jerry Smith 
gives us a history of the HAARP 
project and explains how it can be 
used as ,() an awesome weapon of 
destruction. Smith exposes a 
covert military project and the 
accompanying web of conspiracies 
behind it — a web that leads to 
even more conspiracy theories. 

Smith convincingly explains why this is the ultimate example of 
science out of control — and why Star Wars technology is more than 
just a futuristic concept.

PRIVACY FOR SALE 

How Big Brother and Others are Selling Your 

Private Secrets for Profit 

by Michael E. Chesbro 

Your life is a business all right, but 
you're not the only one profiting from it. 
Scores of government agencies, mail- 
order businesses, telemarketers, 
financial institutions, charitable organi- 
zations, and the data bandits are col- 
lecting details of your private life and 
peddling them to the highest bidder or 
using them to rip you off! "No way," you 
may be thinking. Think again. 

• Your canceled checks or credit 
card charges record the names 
of your doctors and hospitals, 
the publications you read, the 
relatives you help, the political 
and charitable activities you 
support, the volume of business 
you give your liquor store, and the amount you spend 
on transportation. 

• Remember when you had to provide your Social Secu- 
rity number to get a driver's license and register your 
auto? Guess who your state sold those databases to? 

• Do you think that your medical history is privileged infor- 
mation between you and your family doctor? Your files 
could easily end up in a central depository — and in the 
hands of insurance companies or prospective employ- 
ers. 

• Did you think twice before giving the salesclerk at the 
department store your Social Security number and date 
of birth so you could charge that sweater? Did you know 
that you just gave a perfect stranger the "crown jewels" 
of credit card fraud? 

In this comprehensive examination of federal laws and court deci- 
sions related to privacy, the author gives you a practical understand- 
ing of your legal rights and shows you the best way to assert your 
Constitutional right to keep your personal history and purchases from 
being tracked and sold to privacy profiteers.

BE YOUR OWN DICK 

Private Investigating Made Easy 

Revised and Expanded Second Edition 

by John Q. Newman 

Private investigating is all about fast cars, sexy consorts, and 
unlimited expense accounts — on television. In real life, however, the 
world of the investigator requires excellent research skills, patience,

library. 

John Q. Newman (author of Understanding US Identity Docu- 
ments, The Heavy Duty New Identity, and Identity Theft: The Cyber- 
crime of the Millennium) provides tools that make private 
investigating a snap for anyone. Even a novice can learn to find out 
about information such as a target's health, finances, employment, 
private life, "past lives," and hobbies. This second edition brings the 
art of investigation to technology's forefront, with new chapters on: 

• Computer software and databases 

• The Internet and information brokers 

• Understanding criminal records 

• Developing inside sources 

• How to run an investigation 

• Civil court records 

• The importance of the Social Security number.

RAGNAR'S GUIDE TO INTERVIEWS, 

INVESTIGATIONS, AND INTERROGATIONS 

How to Conduct Them, How to Survive Them 

by Ragnar Benson 

Ragnar Benson is America's 
most famous survivalist. Plus, he's 
a writer, with more than 30 books 
under his belt. You probably know 
that he's also a powder monkey of 
some renown, a trapper, a hunter, 
an emergency medicine dis- 
penser, and an "underground 
economist." But did you know that 
he's also a gumshoe? Yep, in his 
free time, Ragnar moonlights as a 
private investigator. In fact, he's 
been involved in the private inves- 
tigation business for more than 25 
years. 

In his first book on the subject 
of investigations, Ragnar provides 
two books in one. He reveals how 
Pis, cops, and military interroga- 
tors conduct interviews, investiga- 
tions, and interrogations, and he shows prospective witnesses how to 
survive them. For investigators, he shares his professional secrets 
and real-life scenarios for creating effective pretexts for any situation, 
opening a witness up and keeping him talking, maximizing the last 
five minutes of an interview, recognizing and "listening" to nonverbal 
clues, and knowing when to use honey and when to splash on the 
vinegar to get the desired results. Then he turns the tables on his fel- 
low investigators and gives potential witnesses specific tips for avoid- 
ing — or at least surviving — the tactics, techniques, and tricks 
favored by skilled interrogators. 

Whether you want to be an investigator or avoid one, you won't 
want to miss Ragnar's Guide to Interviews, Investigations, and 
Interrogations.

THE BASEMENT BUGGER'S BIBLE 

The Professional's Guide to Creating, Building 

and Planting Custom Bugs and Wiretaps 

by Shifty Bugman 

Shifty Bugman has done 
his time in the shadowy world 
of surveillance — and now 
you can benefit from the first- 
hand experience and hard- 
won wisdom of a seasoned 
pro. The Basement Bug- 
ger's Bible is the most com- 
prehensive book on audio 
surveillance ever written. 
Complete with hundreds of 
diagrams, schematics, and 
photos, this hands-on man- 
ual is bursting with authorita- 
tive, verifiable data that is 
specific, concrete, and imme- 
diately applicable. 

In a refreshing departure 
from typical textbook treat- 
ments, Shifty's anecdotal 

style takes the reader on a sordid covert odyssey that offers an inside 
look at how a pro works, what tools he uses, and the process he fol- 
lows in creating, building, and planting custom bugs — complete with 
actual blueprints of bugs built for big-time gigs. 

Shifty leaves nothing to the imagination. Anecdotal detail puts the 
technical data in context, fleshing out what other books of the genre 
merely imply and throwing open Pandora's box of goodies, from ultra- 
sonic bugs, RF bugs, optical bugs, fiberbugs, laserbugs, hardwire 
bugs, and carrier current bugs to ultra long-range directional micro- 
phones, hose mics, contact mics, and spike mics, plus a dozen differ- 
ent phone taps, counterbugging secrets, and much, much more. It's 
all here — everything you ever wanted to know about the under- 
ground business of bugging... and probably a few things you didn't. 
For academic study only.

ELECTRONIC CIRCUITS AND SECRETS 

Of An Old-Fashioned Spy 

by Sheldon Charrett 

In this information-run-amok age of pencil-necked pencil pushers, 
who can an aggrieved party call on for an old-fashioned spy job? 
Why, an old-fashioned spy, that's who! A member of this dying breed 
doesn't sit behind a counter doing candy-ass background checks or 
"due-diligence" searches. An old-fashioned spy builds a bug room, 
plants it on the target premises, and stakes out the joint in person with 
a radio receiver — the old-fashioned way! Let the author, a die-hard 
old-fashioned spy himself, show you how to: 

• Build bugs or take advantage of those already in place — be they 
cordless phones, baby monitors, or cell phones • Assemble a DTMF 
(Touch-Tone TM) decoder with LCD readout or decode the phone 
tones without one • Construct a red box for free pay phone calls • Map 
a cellular coverage area • Modify a Mr. Microphone to broadcast out- 
side the commercial FM band • Crack answering machine passwords 
in seconds • Make a crystal-controlled FM phone tap for those annoy- 
ing subjects who refuse to use cordless phones • Defeat digital and 
spread-spectrum cordless phones with an FM phone tap • and more! 

Many of the procedures in Electronic Circuits and Secrets have 
not been published anywhere — and certainly not in such a clear and 
entertaining style. Here, friends, is an honest-to-goodness, hot-off- 
the-press, in-their-faces, knock-'em-dead, tell-your-friends-and- 
neighbors original — the book old-fashioned spies everywhere are 
clamoring for! For academic study only.

CITIZEN MUCKRAKING 

How to Investigate and Right Wrongs 

in Your Community 

The Center for Public Integrity 









#' 



^^M& 



With six billion people 
on the planet and 275 mil- 
lion living in the USA, who 
can blame anyone for 
thinking that one person 
can't make a difference? 
But don't believe it for a 
second. 

Citizen Muckraking 
contains inspiring stories 
about ordinary people who 
started asking basic ques- 
tions about things in their 
communities that some- 
how just didn't seem right. 
They wrote letters, 
attended hearings, 

obtained government doc- 
uments, asked direct ques- 
tions of public officials — 
all things that full-time, pro- 
fessional investigative 
reporters do day in and day 
out — and their questions 
actually brought about change. In other words, the truth emerged, the 
public became enraged, and wrongs were righted. 

This book outlines some basic techniques that you — or any other 
citizen — can use to obtain information about the toxic-waste dump in 
your neighborhood; the city-council zoning decision that seems to 
benefit one of the council members personally; the reason your utility 
rates have been going up; why some property-tax assessments 
increase yearly but others don't; etc. Information truly is power, and 
this book shows you precisely how to get the facts — and what to do 
with them after you've got them.

PRIVATE INVESTIGATION STRATEGIES 

AND TECHNIQUES 

The World's Greatest Private Eye 

Reveals Her Secrets 

by Angela Woodhull 

Author 
Angela Woodhull 
is a private inves- 
tigator with atti- 
tude. In this book 
she tells us of her 
exploits ferreting 
out the truth for 
her clients and 
we are taken with 
her on some 
really wild excur- 
sions. Each case 
history is then 
analyzed to 
determine the 
strategies that 
made it work. 
While we may be 
entertained by 
her stories, we 
are also learning 
successful meth- 
ods to use for 
ourselves, 
whether trying to 
find out informa- 
tion that involves 
you or someone 
you know, or if 
you are a private investigator with clients of your own. 

Angela Woodhull is streetwise and holds a Ph.D. in Psychology. 
As we see from her examples, once you have found out all you can 
from public records, you still have to pound the pavement to find infor- 
mation for yourself. You will learn the importance of a good database 
and of checking courthouse records and rap sheets. You'll also see 
that sometimes paper chasing isn't enough and that you have to get 
out on the streets and use a good pretext to find out what you want to 
know. Angela Woodhull shows how she has done this with great suc- 
cess. 

Read all about real life cases of unfaithful spouses, fruitcakes, 
vengeful ex-employees, process serving, skip-tracing, pretexting, and 
much more. The author advises you on how to sell your services, as 
well as the qualities necessary for success in this tough and fascinat- 
ing business. Whether you are a private investigator yourself or you 
find the field of private investigation compelling to read about, Private 
Investigation Strategies and Techniques: The World's Greatest 
Private Eye Reveals Her Secrets gives the reader the inside dope 
on what this profession is really all about.

niques of espionage have acquired a mystique and image of glamour

them.

what they mean • The strange and bizarre world of undercover oper- 
ations • Actual case histories of real-life undercover operations •

their own careers • The best weapons to carry on assignment • How

TUNE IN ON TELEPHONE CALLS 

Guide to Intercepting Cellphone, Cordless & 

Other Phone Calls on Scanners 

& Shortwave Receivers 

by Tom Kneitel, K2AES 

You've seen it on TV. You've 
heard about it on the radio. Now 
you can own the completely 
revised and updated new edition 
of the book that made listening in 
on phone calls the booming 
hobby it is today. 

What do people discuss over 
the telephone when they think 
they have total privacy? They 
argue, exchange personal and 
business secrets, make legal and 
illegal deals, conduct lurid or illicit 
romances, gripe about money 
woes, gossip, brag, lie, and more. 
These are business people, politi- 
cians, prostitutes, the media, 
celebrities, criminals, and your 
neighbors! 

Few people are aware that "private" calls made over car phones, 
cordless phones and other such devices are broadcast over the air- 
waves. These calls can be easily overheard by anyone with an inex- 
pensive short-wave receiver or police type scanner. It takes no 
technical expertise to eavesdrop, and listening in has become a pop- 
ular pastime, despite virtually unenforceable legislation enacted to 
regulate such invasion of privacy. 

This book is about such telephone calls, and the discrete frequen- 
cies and channels they use that can be easily received on home and 
portable receivers. This edition contains hundreds of new frequen- 
cies. Now you can TUne In On Telephone Calls!

by Nick Chiaroscuro 

The Briefcase Bug. The 
Postage Stamp Bug. The 
Sonarbug. The Optibug. Are 
these a bevy of wild new cre- 
ations from the screenplay of 
the latest James Bond movie? 
Nope. These are actual, 
working spy toys that anyone 
with a little knowledge, basic 
fabrication skills, and a healthy 
curiosity about the nearly for- 
bidden science of electronic 
surveillance can create in the 
privacy of his or her home 
workshop! 

The Home Workshop 
Spy: Spookware for the Seri- 
ous Hobbyist provides all of 
the circuit-board patterns, 
parts lists, and construction pointers necessary to construct an awe- 
inspiring array of bugs, taps, directional microphones, receivers, and 
other essential pieces of clandestine hardware for one's education 
and/or amusement. You don't need to be a "wire specialist" to appre- 
ciate the simplicity and practicality of these wonderfully sneaky 
designs. 

The book contains 15 projects, each with parts list, schematic, 
and photograph. A Parts Sources section is included, as are complete 
References. This is easily the most informative and complete book 
ever written on this topic. 

BE WARNED: Electronic surveillance is illegal! Individuals who 
break electronic surveillance laws will be relentlessly pursued and 
prosecuted by aggressive and unforgiving law enforcement agencies.

PROTECTIVE SERVICES 

US Army Military Police School 

by the U.S. Army 

The President of the United States is one of the most heavily- 
guarded persons on the planet. An army of protection professionals 
are assigned to him, including advance men, site security profession- 
als and personal bodyguards, all backed by emergency response 
teams and local law enforcement. Yet President Reagan was shot by 
a wacked-out kid with a revolver. 

This proves that no matter what precautions are taken or how 
many people are assigned to the task, the safety of any client is not 
guaranteed. The only thing a professional bodyguard can do is be as 
prepared as possible. 

Protective Services is not some fictional account of the glam- 
orous life of a bodyguard. This manual was prepared by the U.S. 
Army Military Police School as part of the training for police escorts. It 
contains information and techniques used by the Secret Service, 
State Department and U.S. Marshall Service in the protection of 
diplomats and other high-ranking officials. 

The information presented here is designed to be used by one- 
person or small protective teams as well as large-scale, multi-unit 
efforts. Bodyguarding isn't the easy or glamorous job you see on tele- 
vision. Your life and the life of your client are always on the line. Yet 99 
out of 100 times everything goes smoothly. The best you can do is be 
prepared. One of the best manuals ever written on protective services 
is available to you.

COPS! MEDIA VS. REALITY 
byTonyLesce 

Police officers are 
ever-popular subjects in 
the media. We see cop 
shows on TV, including 
both fictional detectives 
and reality-based shows 
such as Cops, in which TV 
crews accompany police 
officers on patrol, raids, 
and other activities. Police 
are also one of the hottest 
news items in radio and 
TV news programs. Each 
year brings a new crop of 
cop movies from Holly- 
wood. Each year sees 
many crime novels 
appear, often written by 
people with an incomplete 
knowledge of their subject. 
They know how to con- 
struct a plot, but lack much 
of the basic knowledge to 
make their works factually 
accurate. 

Fiction is one thing: artistic license allows an author to weave a 
plot for dramatic effect. However, news reporting and documentaries 
are supposed to be straight facts. Often they're not, because both 
unconscious bias and editorial choices affect their accuracy. This is 
why, at a time when crime rates are declining in this country, the news 
media present the impression that we're being assailed by an 
unprecedented crime wave. 

There are many differences in the way law enforcement appears 
in the media, and the way it really is. This book will explore the rea- 
sons why, and present a picture of the way law enforcement really 
operates. It will highlight the contrasts between the way cops are por- 
trayed on TV and in the movies, and the way they work in real life. It 
will show why news reporting, which is supposed to be accurate and 
factual, often is not.

ESPIONAGE 

An Encyclopedia of Spies and Secrets 

by Richard M. Bennett 

Foreword by James Bamford 

With a Preface by David Shayler 

Failure to defend against recent terrorist outrages has drawn 
unprecedented public attention to modern-day global espionage, from 
the U.S. government's involvement in the politics of the Middle East, 
Europe and Africa, to the surveillance of their own citizens by govern- 
ments throughout the western world. This compelling reference 
resource contains over 500 entries covering every aspect of modern- 
day intelligence gathering and counter-terrorism, along with a com- 
prehensive overview of its history. Global in scope, Espionage 
focuses in particular on developments in the field of intelligence since 
the end of the Cold War. 

• The U.S. government's failure to foresee recent terrorist attacks 
against the U.S. • Counter-terrorism, including the growth in commer- 
cial terrorism • Electronic and communications surveillance • Illegal 
activities by the intelligence services from around the world, including 
assassination, smuggling and torture • Terminology and equipment 
explained. 

With entries on individual spies, politicians and diplomats, from 
the players to the patsies, and profiles of the key historical events and 
scandals from the history of spying, Espionage is the ultimate guide 
for journalists, researchers and anyone with an interest in this highly 
topical, controversial and chilling subject.

MODERN FRAUDS AND CON GAMES 
byTony Lesce 

Fraud is the fastest growing 
industry in the world, which is 
why it's become a global tril- 
lion-dollar problem. The main 
reason is that it's low-risk com- 
pared to other crimes. Overall, 
the apprehension rate is about 
three percent and the convic- 
tion rate is about one percent. 

The simple fact is that new 
and menacing techniques of 
fraud spring up almost every 
day. 

This volume describes 
dozens of frauds, many of 
which are not even illegal, but 
do involve deception for eco- 
nomic gain. This book will shed 
light on the new frauds and con 
games, with an extensive 
chapter on steps you can take 
to reduce your vulnerability to 
fraud. No book on fraud can be the final word, but this will help you 
protect yourself and your family. 

Chapters include: 

• Medical Fraud 

• Internet Fraud 

• Identity Theft 

• Charity Fraud 

• Airline Security Scams 

• Possible Remedies 

• and much, much more.

CAREERS IN PRIVATE SECURITY 

How to Get Started, How to Get Ahead 

by Leigh Wade 

In this straight-from-the-horse's- 
mouth guide to jobs in the private 
security field, author Leigh Wade 
shares what he's learned during 30+ 
years of working all sorts of armed 
and unarmed positions. With hon- 
esty and humor, he describes the 
hierarchy of private security jobs, 
starting with unarmed fixed-post 
positions and moving up through 
armed guards, bouncers, correc- 
tions officers, armed couriers, body- 
guards, and the top of the field — 
computer/information security 
experts. 

Wade, a Vietnam veteran who 
served with Special Forces, tells 
potential security personnel how to 
find jobs, what kind of training to 
expect, the pay scale and benefits, advancement potential, the good 
and bad points of each job, and what to expect during a typical work- 
day. Let this knowledgeable guide help you avoid the pitfalls and 
advance to where you should be in the field of private security.

Essentia* Sleight of Hand 
For Street Operators 



THE REAL WORK 

Essential Sleight of Hand for Street Operators 

by Paul Price 

After becoming bored with 
creating illusions at children's 
birthday parties, Paul Price wit- 
nessed a game of Three Card 
Monte on the wharves of San 
Francisco. The following week- 
end, armed with his magician's 
knowledge of sleight of hand, 
our author threw away his 
magician's cloak and went to 
work on the streets. His first 
day at his new profession net- 
ted him $200 in three hours. In 
The Real Work, Paul Price 
shows you how to run various 
street scams, such as Three 
Card Monte, the Three Shell 
game, and other rip-offs. He 
shows you how to do it, and 
tells you how to get safely 
away with your ill-gotten gains. 
As the author reveals: Sleight of hand is more than just hiding objects 
from plain view. It involves concealing the truth and controlling per- 
ception. A good sleight-of-hand artist manipulates the minds of his 
spectators as well as the physical objects that come into contact with 
his hands. 

This book presents two ways of running cons: One, play on the 
sucker's belief that he can get something for nothing, and two, use 
the victim's emotions and perception against him — tug on his heart 
strings, exploit his conditioning. Remember that deep down, most 
people want to be tricked. Show them a rainbow, and they'll look for 
the gold. Your manipulations create rainbows, their ignorance does 
the rest. After reading The Real Work, you will no longer be among 
the mindless mass of followers. You will have the power to profit from 
the public's simple-mindedness. Use it wisely. Sold for informational 
and entertainment purposes only.

GANGS AND THEIR TATTOOS 

Identifying Gangbangers 

on the Street and in Prison 

by Bill Valentine 

Of all the identifiers used to verify gang membership, tattoos are 
perhaps the most pervasive and reliable. Not only are they relatively 
permanent, but they convey a wealth of information about the wearer. 
Used extensively by gangbangers to announce gang affiliation, tat- 
toos can also denote an individual's rank in the particular gang, his 
criminal expertise, and, in some cases, specifics such as the number 
of hits he's performed in service to the gang. 

The culmination of countless hours Bill Valentine spent attending 
gang seminars and working face to face with prison inmates through- 
out his 20-year career as a correctional officer for the Nevada Depart- 
ment of Prisons, this groundbreaking work makes a substantial 
amount of previously classified information available to the general 
public for the first time. In addition to presenting the latest intel on 
white, black, Hispanic, Asian, and prison gangs, Valentine includes 
new information on groups such as the White Afrikaner Resistance 
movement and the Russian Mafiya, which add to the daunting chal- 
lenge faced by those laboring to hold the line against the menace 
posed by gangs, hate groups, and organized crime. Gangs and Their 
Tattoos fills a void in the available literature and will serve as a valu- 
able visual reference for law enforcement as well as attorneys, school 
teachers, hospital personnel (including those in the pathology labs), 
workplace supervisors, private security firms, antigang organizations,- 
and people from all different sectors who have an interest in identify- 
ing and tracking gangs and other organizations known for perpetrat- 
ing violent crime and mayhem.

THE ART & SCIENCE OF MONEY LAUNDERING 

Inside the Commerce of The International 

Narcotics Traffickers 

by Brett Woods 

The first rule of crime detection is to 
follow the money. Brett Woods shows 
how to do it all over the world — and in 
cyberspace. Laundering money has 
always been something of an art form, 
but in the electronic age it has also 
become a science. No longer do drug 
traffickers take briefcases stuffed with 
$10s and $20s down to the local bank to 
exchange them for larger denomina- 
tions. Cybercurrency has given profes- 
sional money movers the three critical 
tools they need to evade fraud detec- 
tors: speed, modern encryption tech- 
nologies, and most important, 
anonymity. As a result, the problems 
confronting law enforcement agencies 
and policymakers in the United States and around the world are 
becoming more complex and evasive. 

The Art & Science of Money Laundering is the most authorita- 
tive and thorough treatment of the subject you'll ever get your hands 
on. The author is a certified fraud examiner, former U.S. Secret Ser- 
vice agent and the current inspector general for the state of New Mex- 
ico. In this book, he uses his expertise to examine how money 
laundering works around the world and explains the roles offshore 
banks and tax havens play. He also includes a critique of the new and 
proposed money-laundering countermeasures by the United Nations, 
the U.S., and other countries. This is an essential reference for all law 
enforcement professionals, private investigators, lawyers, adventur- 
ers, and curious citizens who want to get inside the networks of 
today's professional money brokers.

HOW TO BECOME A PROFESSIONAL 

CON ARTIST 

by Dennis M. Marlock 

A fool and his money are soon parted, so the saying goes. And if 
the job is done right, the fool doesn't even realize if s happened until 
the wily con artist has moved on to the next victim or the next town. In 
this entertaining and eye-opening book, Dennis M. Marlock, a retired 
cop and chairman of the board for the international law enforcement 
organization Professionals Against Confidence Crime, takes the 
reader into the mind and greedy heart of the con man. You will learn 
the mechanics behind famous swindles such as the pigeon drop, the 
Jamaican switch, bank-examiner schemes, three-card Monte, and 
even fortune-telling. You will find out why a good scam artist rarely 
gets caught and, if he does, how he gets away with the lightest pun- 
ishment or no punishment at all. If you've ever read a news story 
about a sucker getting taken and wondered how he could have fallen 
for that, you need to read this book before an honest-faced stranger 
offers you a deal too good to pass up.

DON'T BE A VICTIM! 

How to Protect Yourself from Hoaxes, 

Scams, and Frauds 

by Michael E. Chesbro 

Hoaxes, scams, frauds... tens of thousands of people become 
victims of these crimes every year. But how can so many people be 
conned out of their life savings, be tricked into paying for products 
and services they will never receive, or even lose their complete iden- 
tity to these criminals? 

We have become so used to disclosing private information about 
our lives at every turn that when someone asks us for our Social 
Security number, bank account number, or the like, we don't see 
these inquiries as the risk and intrusion into our lives that they are. 
Too often we answer these questions without the slightest thought 
about the damage that can be done with this information. We lock our 
front doors to keep a burglar from breaking in, but do nothing to pre- 
vent a criminal from stealing our personal and private information and 
maybe our complete identities. 

In this book we will look at various different hoaxes, scams, and 
types of fraud. We will learn to recognize these crimes for what they 
are and we will look at things we can do to protect ourselves from 
becoming victims of these crimes. It is important to remember, how- 
ever, that no book can identify every possible hoax, scam, or fraud or 
every variation on these crimes. There will always be some new twist, 
some new way that criminals find to take advantage of the unsus- 
pecting. 

What we can do is learn to recognize the most common of these 
crimes, and to recognize the underlying principles that make these 
crimes successful. With this awareness, and by taking certain com- 
mon sense precautions, we can shield ourselves from these crimes, 
causing the criminals to move on to the many people who don't take 
these threats seriously.

BLACK COLLAR CRIMES 

An Encyclopedia 

of False Prophets 

and Unholy Orders 

by Michael Newton 

Whaf s up with the clergy? Some of these supposedly God-fearing 
folks are flouting the law of the land! Murder... make that mass mur- 
der! And rape... including the statutory kind! Not to mention kidnap- 
ping, torture, conspiracy, slavery, prostitution, forgery, child 
pornography, terrorist bombings, sexual assault and/or battery, grand 
larceny, embezzlement, and lots more! 

Author Michael Newton has catalogued a grim host of decidedly 
nonsanctimonious characters in Black Collar Crimes: An Encyclo- 
pedia of False Prophets and Unholy Orders. This lexicon of law- 
lessness is truly astounding! Mail fraud, indecent exposure, theft, 
perjury, arson, assault with intent to kill, sexual abuse, contributing to 
the delinquency of a minor, bigamy, inciting a riot, public lewdness, 
manslaughter, sodomy, electronic eavesdropping, bankruptcy, fraud, 
obscenity, inflicting bodily harm, income tax evasion, child molesta- 
tion... well, the list continues to astound pious readers! 

You'll never view the clergy in the same way you do now, once 
you've read Newton's amazing expose of religious misconduct! Slan- 
der, money laundering, DWI, immigration fraud, practicing medicine 
without a license, solicitation, impersonating a public official, genital 
or oral penetration by a foreign object, adultery, disorderly conduct, 
indecent exposure, assault and battery, weapons violations, bar- 
barism... are there any lengths to which these depraved men (and 
women!) of God will not go? 

Apparently not! Read Black Collar Crimes now, and prepare 
yourself for a harsh blast of secular reality!

DOCUMENT FRAUD 
AND OTHER CRIMES OF DECEPTION 

by Jesse M. Greenwald 

Jesse M. Greenwald is an admittedly proud rebel with 22 felony 
convictions and five prison terms to his credit, who has been perpe- 
trating document frauds of various types for over 20 years. Green- 
wald has garnered and squandered a fortune with his fiendishly 
clever scams during his life of crime. He stung the Bank of America 
via computer for over one million dollars in 1993! Currently incarcer- 
ated at a maximum security prison in Arizona, Greenwald wrote Doc- 
ument Fraud and Other Crimes of Deception with grim-faced 
prison guards literally looking over his shoulder! The result of his liter- 
ary endeavors is the most succinct and informative work about mod- 
ern techniques of document fraud ever penned! 

Document Fraud and Other Crimes of Deception clearly 
explains: 

• Computer equipment any forger needs, and alterna- 
tive methods of acquiring it • Necessary software • How 
the forger gets the right paper • The notary stamp • How 
the forger fabricates checks, stock certificates, trust and 
quit claim deeds, vehicle titles, and bonded credit cards 

• Methods the forger employs to obtain alternative iden- 
tification • Insurance fraud • How the forger makes his 
own credit cards • How the forger sets up a phony but 
convincing office as a front • Tenant and real estate 
scams the forger engages in • and much, much more! 

Described by the authorities as "a classic career criminal," "a 
sociopath," "a serious repeat white-collar offender," and "a one-man 
crime wave," whose "rehabilitation appears to be remote at best," 
Greenwald was once featured on America's Most Wanted! He knows 
the shadowy world of the document forger as^vell as any man alive, 
and shares his expertise with interested readers in Document Fraud 
and Other Crimes of Deception!

CHEATERS ALWAYS PROSPER 

50 Ways to Beat the System 

Without Being Caught 

by James Brazil 

^ When author James Brazil was 16, 

he applied for a caddie job at a swank 
California country club. To his chagrin, 
the club would not employ anyone 
under 18. With the help of his mother's 
secretary, Brazil falsified his age and 
got the job, learning at an early age that 
rules were made to be broken. As Brazil 
matured, he learned about under-the- 
counter arrangements, payoffs, mutual 
back scratching, and the out-and-out 
rip-offs that are a part of our culture's 
social fabric. 

Cheaters Always Prosper presents 
a potpourri of Brazil's maneuvers which 
are designed to outwit the system, 
including: • How to get free admission to 
movies and concerts • How to dine for free at upscale restaurants • 
How to get out of a speeding ticket • How to fly first class at coach 
prices (and sometimes for free) • How to enjoy accommodations at a 
deluxe hotel without renting a room and much, much more! 

Brazil is not ashamed to admit that walking a crooked mile fre- 
quently pays off. This collection of his experiences and scams will be 
entertaining reading for those who take an interest in getting some- 
thing for nothing. Sold for informational purposes only

SPECIALTY POLICE MUNITIONS 

The Hottest New Specialty Ammunition, 

Weapons Platforms, Devices, and 

Chemical Agents for 

Real-World Law Enforcement 

by Tony L Jones 

In a real-world situation, the more tools and techniques a police 
officer has at his disposal, the higher his odds of surviving and pro- 
tecting his fellow officers and those he is sworn to serve. The firearms 
he carries are generally issued to him by the department after a care- 
ful evaluation of reliability, stopping power, and legal considerations. 
Equal care should be used when selecting munitions, but, sadly, this 
is usually not the case. In Police Specialty Munitions, veteran 
SWAT officer and police trainer Tony L. Jones looks at the latest lethal 
and "less lethal" police specialty munitions and tools being fielded, 
tested, or researched by the major ammunition manufacturers. 

• Specialty impact (less lethal) munitions — electrical 
stun devices, stun shields, Tasers, antiterrorist rounds 

• Specialty lethal munitions — detonating tip, enhanced 
expanding, and frangible rounds; steel tacks, darts, and 
hooks; nested projectiles; explosive door cutters 

• Chemical agent munitions — area devices, tactical 
aerosols devices, chemical agent launchers 

• Distraction devices — distraction vs. diversionary muni- 
tions, rendering safe procedures, rules of engagement 

• Specialty training munitions — marking ammo, blank 
rounds, nontoxic ammo, tracer rounds, reduced-recoil 
ammo, computer-simulated training programs. 

Being a police officer is tough enough without having to worry 

about whether your munitions will perform in the line of fire or whether 

you will be reprimanded or slapped with a lawsuit for using the wrong 

weapon. Make sure that your department has the right tools for the 

job and that officers are trained to use them properly.

your chances of escaping homi-

your chances of being victim-

much greater that it's almost 
impossible to measure the risk. 
Identity theft is only one type of 
high-tech fraud, although it ties 
in with other fraud schemes. 
There are many other scams 
operating, and the law enforce-

doesn't have a handle on them.

Fraud • Computer and Internet Fraud • Retail Store Scams • Media 
Scams • Fund Raising Organizations • Miscellaneous Scams • Pro-

No one can guarantee you 100 percent protection. Fraud artists 

are very imaginative and creative, with agile minds that adapt to the 

changing scene. 21 st Century Fraud will highlight the need for you to 

be especially vigilant and to develop a paranoid attitude. It is all right

GANGBANGERS 

Understanding the Deadly Minds 

of America's Street Gangs 

by Loren W. Christensen 

Many people in America think that gang violence is concentrated 
in New York, Los Angeles, and a few isolated big cities. They are mis- 
taken. Gangs are everywhere — in the nation's largest cities and 
smallest towns; in the suburbs and rural areas; on both coasts and 
throughout the Bible Belt. And gangs are equal-opportunity destroy- 
ers: there are white gangs, black gangs, Hispanic gangs, and Asian 
gangs. Gangs are everywhere, and they are here to stay. No matter 
how many government bucks are given to feel-good organizations to 
reach out and interface with them, gangs and gangbangers keep 
increasing like cockroaches in a shabby tenement. And gangs are 
getting nastier, too. Ten years ago, they fought with fists, clubs, and 
pistols. Now they have incredible firepower, they have lots of it, and 
they don't think twice about using it. They aren't intimidated by the 
police or the prospect of getting killed or going to prison. 

Loren Christensen served as a gang-enforcement officer in the 
Portland, Oregon, police department for many years. He dealt with 
gangs on a daily basis, and he observed the number of lives lost and 
ruined by gang violence. Here, he lets gang members, former gang 
members, gang-enforcement officers, juvenile-detention officers, 
social workers, and school officials tell you in their own words about 
gangbangers and how they think, why they commit such senseless 
acts of violence, who they target and why, and what if anything can be 
done to curb the growth of gangs in America.

HOW TO STEAL FOOD 

FROM THE SUPERMARKET 

by J. Andrew Anderson 



!lliowSp ; 'j 



We live in a wonderful country, where 
we get to pay taxes for farm subsidies so 
that we can be overcharged for food at 
the supermarket. A country where people 
starve to death outside stores that sell 
gourmet diet dog food. A country where 
we can publish a book that tells you how 
to steal food from the supermarket. 

Written by a supermarket security 
guard, How to Steal Food From the 
Supermarket will teach you how to pur- 
loin some sirloin, how to snatch a batch 
of cookies, how to poach eggs. Here's 
the real skinny on getting fat: • The myth 
of low profit margins for supermarkets • 
Using coupons for stuff you didn't buy • 
Anderson's Three Laws of Shoplifting • How to dress for shoplifting 
success • Do-it-yourself markdowns • How America's food distribution 
system screws you — why you should steal food • Switching bar 
codes • What to do if a security guard sees you stealing • Scamming 
the Scanner -What to do if you are caught red-handed • And much

MAKING CRIME PAY 
by Harold S. Long 

What does it take to succeed at criminal activity — what does it 
take to make crime pay? In Making Crime Pay, an experienced crim- 
inal delves deeply into the realities of the criminal justice system, and 
offers many hard-won suggestions for successfully evading the sys- 
tem. 

Topics covered include: • What "probable cause" really amounts to 
• How to handle encounters with the police — how to lie and get away 
with it • Preparedness for possible confrontations with police • The

Introduction 

Here in the "Land of the Free" we lock up more (and a higher per- 
centage) of our own citizens than any other nation on Earth. Even the 
former Soviet Union and South Africa under apartheid never exceeded 
the incarceration rate of present-day America. And more prisons are 
being built all the time! The insane "War on Drugs," idiotic mandatory 
minimum sentences for minor crimes, and misguided "Three Strikes" 
laws guarantee that our prison population will continue to grow. 




THE CELLING OF AMERICA 

An Inside Look at the U.S. Prison Industry 

Edited by Daniel Burton-Rose with Dan Pens 

and Paul Wright 

Introduction by William Greider 

Listen to these powerful voices from America's growing' 
gulag! As William Grieder writes in The Celling of America: An 
Inside Look at the U.S. Prison Industry's introduction, 'The 
bookshelves are abundantly stocked with scholarly studies of 
the United States' criminal justice system, but there are few, if 
any, like (this) book... It was mainly written by criminals. Their 
essays are sharply informative because they are grounded in 
reality, the clarifying experience of dwelling within the penal sys- 
tem. We should listen to them. We will learn from what they see 
and know. We may begin to think more clearly about all that 
must be changed." 

In The Celling of America: An Inside Look at the U.S. 
Prison Industry, prison journalists will kick open the doors of 
America's prisons and take you on a hair-raising tour to teach 
you: How corporations such as Microsoft are raking in big bucks 
from slave prison labor; How the privatization of prisons leads to 
prisoners building their own cages; That over 3,000 men and 
women live under a death sentence in America, and 40% of 
them are black. 

Read these heartfelt essays and gain a fuller understanding 
of today's prisons, many of which are rapidly becoming slave- 
labor camps. The Celling of America: An Inside Look at the 
U.S. Prison Industry \s divided into eight sections: 
The New Politics of Crime, 
The Distorted Lens (The Corporate Media Filter of Crime and 

Justice), 
The Downward Spiral (Prisons Do Their Damnedest to Increase 

the Misery), 
Workin' for the Man (Prison Labor in the U.S.A.), 
Money and Warm Bodies (The Prison-Industrial Complex in the 

United States), 
Crimes of the Keepers (Racism, Corruption and Brutality), 
Permanent Lockdown (Control Unit Prisons and the Proliferation 

of the Isolation Model), 
and Prisoner Struggles and Rebellions. 

En masse, along with Greider's cogent introduction, they 
offer a grim look at what's going on behind bars in this country. 
Remember... there's a cell waiting for you!

IMPROVISED WEAPONS IN AMERICAN PRISONS 
by Jack Luger 

The story of prison weapons is fascinating, because of the difficult 
conditions under which prison inmates must acquire them. In some of 
the most repressive, most controlled environments on Earth, prison- 
ers still make and use weapons. 

It would be unrealistic to romanticize this. The story of prisoners 
and their weapons is not evidence of the unquenchability of the 
human spirit against adversity, or anything like it. In reality, weapons 
made by prisoners are usually crude and made for sordid ends. The 
photographs in this book will make that point convincingly. 

Improvised Weapons in American Prisons covers in vast detail 
the kinds of weapons used in prisons, how they are used, whom they 
are used against, and how they are made. Complete sections, with 
many rare photographs, cover knives, garottes, firebombs, blunt 
instruments, and even guns. The author also covers the hiding places 
in prison, prison smuggling, and escapes. 

Highlighting the easy-to-read informative text are more than four 
dozen photographs of actual weapons, made and used by prisoners 
throughout the United States. Improvised Weapons in American 
Prisons is the most fascinating weapons book to be published in 
years! Be sure to order your copy now.

SURVIVING IN PRISON 
by Harold S. Long 

Convicts don't live in prisons — they survive them. Harold S. Long 
has written a disturbing and deeply moving account of prison life. 
Long has been behind bars for over ten years. He describes how pris- 
ons are run: the penal code and the cellblock code. He takes you out 
to the yard and into the hole. He explains the complete failure of most 
"rehabilitation" programs. And he reveals what it is like to survive the 
isolation, humiliation, and brutality of prison life. 

Chapters include: • Power Structures • The Prison Experience: 
Day One to Day Ninety • Isolation and Segregation Units • Programs 
and Recreation • The Internal Litigation Process • Interpersonal 
Aspects of Prison Life • Our Present, Our Future • And More. 

Surviving in Prison is much more than the story of how prisons 
work and where they fail. It is the true account of one man's struggle 
to preserve some shred of dignity that he can use to build a new life... 
if only he can survive.

LOCKDOWN AMERICA 

Police and Prisons in the Age of Crisis 

by Christian Parenti 

Lockdown America docu- 
ments the horrors and absurdities 
of militarized policing, prisons, a 
fortified border, and the war on 
drugs. Its accessible and vivid 
prose makes clear the links 
between crime and politics in a 
period of gathering economic cri- 
sis. Parenti argues that beginning 
in the late sixties, US capitalism hit 
a dual social and economic crisis, 
and it was in response to this crisis 
that the criminal justice buildup of 
today began. After a surge of 
expansion in the late sixties the 
growth of criminal justice 
plateaued in the late seventies, 
only to resume in earnest during 
the early and mid eighties with 
Reagan's war on drugs. Since then we've been on a steady path 
toward ever more state repression and surveillance. 

The first section of the book deals with the recent history of Amer- 
ican political economy and the origins of the current criminal justice 
buildup. The second explores some important forms of policing, like 
New York-style zero tolerance, SWAT teams, and the Immigration 
and Naturalization Service (INS) war on immigrants. The third deals 
with prison: the politics of life inside (gangs, rape, and brutality) and 
incarceration's role in reproducing the US economic and social order. 
Lockdown America is an important and frightening look at what is 
happening to the freedoms of Americans.

THE TALLAHASSEE PROJECT 

A Glimpse Inside the Shattered Lives of 

100 Non-Violent Women Prisoners 

of the War on Drugs 

A Project of the Committee on Unjust Sentencing 

These are the voices of one hundred 
women prisoners of the War on Drugs. 
Locked inside FCI Tallahassee under 
unyielding federal drug sentencing guide- 
lines, these women are held alongside 
hardened criminals. Their crimes are non- 
violent, and frequently victimless. They are 
mothers, daughters, sisters, and victims. 
These are their stories in their own words. 
Things you should know about prisons 
in the US: There are approximately two 
million people in US prisons and jails 
today, and 5.7 million people under state 
supervision • The incarceration rate in the 
United States is 725 for every 100,000 — the highest in the world • 
One in 1 30 people will serve time at some point in their lives • The 
number of women serving time in state and federal prisons has 
increased 92% in the last 10 years • It costs more to send a person to 
prison for a year than to Harvard University for a year • The prison 
system is not filled with violent and dangerous people; the majority of 
people are being sent to prison for drug charges and acts which 
involve no violence whatsoever. 

The Tallahassee Project \s an unnerving portrait of the unfair 
attack on America's families by the contemptible War on Drugs. Read 
these stories and decide for yourself who the War on Drugs is really 
fighting and at what cost the battle is waged.

PRISON KILLING TECHNIQUES 

Blade, Bludgeon and Bomb 

by Half Dean Omar 

Anyone whose 
lifestyle or job might 
conceivably bring them 
into contact with this 
nation's fast-growing 
prisons — and the sub- 
cultural survivalists 
who hunt there — will 
benefit from reading 
this graphic and shock- 
ing book. 

Consider the 

unique demands of the 
prison survival sce- 
nario: Nowhere to run, 
nowhere to hide. 

In many ways, 
prison is the ultimate 
self-defense challenge. 
You check your guns at 
the door. 

Here, you quickly 
learn the difference 
between training and 
experience.' 

You may have 
trained tor years to sur- 
vive on foreign terrain. You may have trained 20 years in karate or 
some other martial art. You may be very well trained, but inside the 
confines of the Steel Nation, experience is what counts. 
Here, no punches are pulled as they are in training. 
Do you know where to find and how to use the environmental 
weapons provided by your surroundings? 

Improvised weapons (and how to use them) included in this book 
include: • A mop is a spear waiting to happen • A sock filled with bat- 
teries is a "soap-on-a-rope" bludgeon • The cross-bar on a typewriter 
is an ice-pick • Caps can hide razors • Rolled-up magazines can turn 
into mushfake nunchakus • Can lids, appliances, broken light bulbs, 
and much, much more can be lethal— if you know how to use them! 
Read Prison Killing Techniques and you will be shocked and 
amazed — and well-armed, to boot.

PRISON-ESE 

A Survivor's Guide to Speaking Prison Slang 

by Gary K. Farlow, J.D. 

"If you loan me your car, I'll put some gas 
in it." This statement sounds like a teenager 
attempting to borrow a father's car for a Sat- 
urday night date. In prison, this statement 
means, "If you'll loan me your radio, I'll put 
some new batteries in it." "Prison-ese" is fast 
becoming a new dialect of the vast and grow- 
ing subculture in our nation's prisons and cor- 
rectional facilities. With nearly two million 
people currently incarcerated in the United 
States, this guide to prison slang was devel- 
oped to be a useful tool for staff, volunteers, 
family members, and of course, the inmates 
themselves. 

All of the terms and phrases in this "dictionary" were collected by 
the author over a period of ten years while incarcerated in the North 
Carolina Department of Corrections, Division of Prisons. Attempts 
have been made to define each term as accurately as possible. 
Included along with each definition is an example of how the term 
might be used in a sentence, in an effort to add clarity to the word's 
meaning and demonstrate its common usage. It should be noted that 
many of the words and phrases are explicit, vulgar and graphic. 

In addition to being a useful guide for the understanding of termi- 
nology, Prison-ese offers insight into the criminal mind and the sub- 
culture of our nation's penal system. This book can be a useful tool for 
correctional staff, but also offers valuable information for the sociolo- 
gist, cultural anthropologist, and for the field of psychology. For exam- 
ple, the number of terms or phrases used to refer to a specific 
phenomenon is suggestive of that term's importance within the prison 
culture.

even begged for mercy. Now You Are Going to 
Prison and there's not a damn thing you can do 
about it... except learn how to make the time go

Jim Hogshire guides you through the correc- 
tional system, pointing out all the dangers and 
scams, leading you toward the safest path. If you 
or a loved one are about to be swallowed up by 
the system, you need this information if you 
hope to come out whole. Topics covered include: 
• Custody • Trial • Prison • Jailhouse Justice • Execution • And much 
more. 

You Are Going to Prison is the most accurate, no-bullshit guide 
to prison life we have ever seen. You don't want to read this book 
unless you're going to do time, because you won't be able to get the 
sickening images out of your head. 

"Planning to embezzle a couple mil from your company's pension 
plan? Hold up a bank? Kill your wife's lover? Chances are you'll end 
up doing time, and if Jim Hogshire's You Are Going to Prison is any 
indication, it won't be a country club. (In fact, there are only two "coun- 
try club" prisons, says Hogshire — Allenwood, Pennsylvania, the 
other in Elgin, Florida.) Based on inside information from prisoners 
who have endured long sentences in such ominous institutions as the 
federal maximum security prison in Marion, Indiana, the book pro- 
vides prospective inmates with a step-by-step guide to incarceration, 
beginning with arrest and ending — at least in some unfortunate 
cases — with the administration of the death penalty." — Esquire,

RACE TO INCARCERATE 
by Marc Mauer 

As we enter the new century, Amer- 
ica's race to incarcerate continues virtu- 
ally unabated. The 1 .7 million Americans 
locked in the nation's prisons and jails in 
1 997 are now expected to increase to 
over two million by the end of 2001 . Fur- 
ther, the United States has regained the 
dubious distinction of being the world's 
leading incarcerator. Despite over- 
crowded and unconstitutional conditions 
in many American prisons, government 
officials are hardly leading the call for a 
reduction in the use of incarceration. 

Nationally, more than half of prison- 
ers are incarcerated for a nonviolent 
offense, including nearly a half million 

inmates in the nation's prisons and jails either serving time or awaiting 
jail for a drug offense. This latter figure is equal to the total number of 
inmates for all offenses just twenty years ago. 

Race to Incarcerate tells the chilling story of the unprecedented 

expansion of the American prison population over the last two 

decades, demonstrating how the dramatic increase in the number of 

prisons and jails has failed to produce any substantial impact on 

crime. The book critiques America's war on drugs and shows how 

those policies have emphasized rigid control — through police and 

prisons — - over legalization and economic development.

THE PERPETUAL PRISONER MACHINE 

How America Profits from Crime 

by Joel Dyer 

Every thinking person in America 
ought to read this book. In The Perpet- 
ual Prisoner Machine, Joel Dyer takes 
a critical look at the United States' crim- 
inal justice system as we enter the new 
millennium. America has more than 
tripled its prison population since 1980 
even though crime rates have been 
either flat or declining. The U.S. now 
incarcerates nearly two million people 
in its prisons and jails oh any given day 
and more than five million of its citizens 
are currently under some form of jus- 
tice department supervision. These 
facts raise an obvious question: If crime 
rates aren't going up, then why is the 
prison population? The Perpetual 
Prisoner Machine provides the answer to this question, and shock- 
ingly, it has little to do with crime or justice. The answer is "profit." 

From the 1990s on, through their mutual and pension funds, mil- 
lions of American investors are now unwittingly profiting from crime. 
As a result of America's controversial push toward the privatization of 
its justice system, a growing number of well-known and politically 
influential U.S. corporations — and consequently their shareholders 
— are now cashing in on a prison trade with a profit potential that is 
tied directly to the growth of the prison population. A disturbing real- 
ization, when you consider the influence that these same multina- 
tional companies now have over our government's policy-making 
process by way of their lobbyists and their ability to fill campaign cof- 
fers. 

The Perpetual Prisoner Machine explains how the new prison- 
industrial complex has capitalized upon the public's fear of crime — 
which has its origins in violent media content — to help bring about 
the "tough on crime" policies that have led to our prison-filling, and 
therefore profitable "war on crime." 

Dyer concludes that powerful, market-driven forces have manipu- 
lated America into fighting a very real war against an imaginary foe. 
"Unfortunately," says Dyer, "real wars have real casualties. And in this 
case the victims are America's poor, particularly those segments of 
our black and Hispanic populations who live in poverty and who now 
comprise the vast majority of the new human commodity."

researched — don't miss The Perpetual Prisoner Machine!

THE BIG HOUSE 

How American Prisons Work 

byTony Lesce 

Bursting at the seams, our 
prison system is in a state of cri- 
sis. Many prisons are under court 
order to reduce overcrowding. 
New drug laws and mandatory 
sentencing requirements only add 
to the problem. There's no place 
left to put criminals except back 
on the street. 

The solutions don't come 
easy. Who should be let out 
early? Who should stay behind 
bars? Will taxpayers foot the bill 
for more jails? Will capital punish- 
ment help solve overcrowding? 
Thousands of lives and billions of 
dollars wait on the answers. That's why The Big House is so impor- 
tant. 

The Big House is not a collection of reform theories. Rather, it is 
an incredibly detailed look at exactly how prisons work: how do you 
house, feed, and control thousands of violent, angry people? The Big 
House takes a gritty look at issues like capital punishment, psy- 
chosurgery, riot control and dealing with the sexual needs of prison- 
ers. 

Tony Lesce understands the interplay between convicts and their 
keepers. A frequent contributor to law enforcement publications, he is 
also the author of Escape From Controlled Custody. In The Big 
House, he examines the prison system from all perspectives: the 
inmates, the guards, the politicians, and the taxpayers. 

The crisis in criminal justice touches the lives of everyone. Those 
concerned with how the prison system works — and how it can work 
better should start with The Big House.

BREAKFAST WITH THE DEVIL

MYMItMON 



No other person on this continent has 
escaped from prison as many times as 
Wayne Carlson. They called him "Houdini." 
Arrested for car theft as a teenager, Carl- 
son embarrassed authorities 13 times with 
daring jail breaks, only to be recaptured, his 
sentences extended as punishment. 
Escape was a survival strategy for Carlson 
— helping to guard his mind and soul from 
the erosive effects of so much time spent in 
these hellish places. All of a sudden, 38 
years had gone by. 

Breakfast With the Devil is an aston- 
ishing account of the life of one man in a 
world scarred by loneliness, a world thriving on brutality and intimida- 
tion. Carlson casts light into dark places, giving us insight into the 
grim realities of the criminal justice system and the terrible effect jail 
time has on the human spirit. 

Carlson's memoir includes passages describing some of 
Canada's most infamous criminals: serial killer Clifford Olson, an 
unremarkable man before prison made him a monster, and "square 
John" Colin Thatcher (Carlson's bridge partner, for a time), guilty of 
murder but convicted with lies. 

Above all, Breakfast With the Devil gives us a clear idea of what 
hope can mean to a man, driven by an overwhelming desire for free-

HOW TO CIRCUMVENT A SECURITY ALARM 

IN 10 SECONDS OR LESS 

An Insider's Guide to How It's Done 

and How to Prevent It 

by B. Andy 

This revealing book explains in nontechnical detail how anyone 
can bypass a security alarm system in seconds, leaving you and your 
loved ones vulnerable to burglary or worse. Industry insider B. Andy 
points out the glaring weaknesses of such popular devices as contact 
switches, motion detectors, pressure pads and glass-break sensors, 
as well as the "ultimate circumvention technique" that will render even 
the most sophisticated systems useless. He also gives you a shock- 
ing look inside the security business: how the alarms are installed, 
how they're paid for, how they're monitored and how they're 
responded to. You may not like what you read. 

Fortunately, Andy also provides plenty of advice and tricks on how 
to make your system more secure from violators, as well as the vital 
issues you should know and the questions you should ask when deal- 
ing with alarm installers, monitoring stations and local law enforce- 
ment. This valuable lesson in home and business security will help 
you identify and improve the vulnerable areas of your alarm system 
for maximum protection, safety and peace of mind.

"/ could not count the 
number of times I've seen a 
$200 fire-safe holding thou- 
sands of dollars in cash, or 
an 1890s safe expected to 
withstand 1990s attacks" — 
Wayne B. Yeager 

Techniques of Safe- 
cracking reveals every 
known method for breaking 
into safes, vaults and safety 
deposit boxes. It begins with 
simple ways to guess combi- 
nations — or steal them. In 
illustrated detail, it shows 
how to drill, punch and peel 
a safe. And it shows how 
high-tech hoods use torches 
and explosives to get at your 
goods. 

Chapters include: 

• Safe Mechanics and 
Operations 

• Guessing the Combination 

• Manipulation Techniques 

• Safe Drilling Methods 

• Deterrence and Prevention 

• And much more, including a listing of manufacturers' try-out com- 
binations (combinations set by the manufacturers at the factory — 
they are supposed to be changed by the new owners, but many 
people do not do this, so these combinations will open a surprising 
number of safes in operation today), and a listing of suppliers of 
lock and safe opening equipment. 

For the locksmith or police officer, for the private investigator or 
store owner, for the security professional or the just plain curious, 
Techniques of Safecracking is an eye-opening book written by a 
working security professional. It is the single finest book of its kind 
ever written, and we highly recommend it.

HOME SECURITY 

How to Select Reliable Locks and Alarms 

for Your Home, Office, or Car 

by Carl Hammer 

Burglary is no mere inconven- 
ience. Not only is the shock of see- 
ing your home destroyed and your 
belongings stolen traumatizing, but 
your chances of actually being killed 
by a sociopathic (and frequently 
drug-crazed) intruder are far too 
high these days. No insurance set- 
tlement will cover the feeling of vul- 
nerability you'll suffer if your 
sanctuary is violated or family mem- 
bers are injured or killed. 

Too many people get lulled into 
a false sense of security by silver- 
tongued salesmen and install 
expensive high-security systems 
but do nothing about their vulnera- 
ble doors, windows and locks. 
Home Security reveals how bur- 
glars actually target and break into buildings and then demonstrates 
proven tactics and techniques for thwarting would-be intruders, from 
neighborhood vandals to the most sophisticated art thieves and gov- 
ernment agents. The advice includes dozens of low-tech, low-cost, 
low-maintenance measures to safeguard your home inside and out. 
An extensive section on alarms shows you the best way to install a 
secure system based on your individual needs, as well as how even 
the most expensive of these systems can be circumvented if you are 
not careful. The last part of the book details reliable home safes, safe 
gun storage solutions, vehicle alarms, specific problems for shop- 
keepers and how they can be solved, and other special situations, 
including how you can protect yourself and family members when you 
are away from home. In the war against burglary, knowledge is your 
best defense.

MODERN HIGH-SECURITY LOCKS 

How to Open Them 

by Steven Hampton 

Master locksmith Steven Hampton 
takes the art of picking locks one step 
further with Modern High-Security 
Locks. Here, he collects some of 
today's most popular pick-resistant locks 
and sets out to see which ones live up to 
their claims. Generally speaking, the 
more complex a lock, the more secure it 
is. However complex the lock gets, 
though, it must be durable, dependable, 
and user-friendly. It has to be tough 
enough to endure physical attack, but it 
can't be machined too tight or it will jam 
up with just a breath of dust. It must be 
simple and easy to lock and unlock with 
its key, or the customer will not pay the 
higher price for it. It is this delicate balance between security and util- 
ity that allows the locksmith to open this new generation of locks. 

Hampton shows locksmiths how each lock is picked and how long 
it will take. He details the tools of the trade and includes patterns and 
instructions for making your own picks and tension wrenches. He 
even includes ancient Tibetan Buddhist tantric visualization exercises 
to help locksmiths learn to "see" the inner workings of the lock within 
the mind's eye. Veteran locksmiths or those new to the trade will find 
Hampton's latest book an invaluable sourcebook. For academic study 
only.

PICK GUNS 

Lock Picking for Spies, 

Cops and Locksmiths 

by John Minnery 

The ability to open locks with- 
out keys is one of the few awe- 
inspiring skills left in a world where 
electronic wonders are boringly 
commonplace, yet it is a skill that is 
no longer monopolized by lock- 
smiths who jealously guard their 
secrets. The pick gun has taken 
the art of lock picking away from a 
select few and democratized the 
ability to open locks by mechanical 
means. 

This book gives an overview of 
the mechanical principles of pick 
guns, how they work and how to 
use them, and traces the develop- 
ment of the pick gun from its incep- 
tion to today's revolutionary 
devices. Included are the original 
patents by Epstein, Segal, Moore, 

Cooke and others, as well as info on pick guns used by the FBI and 
intelligence agencies. Photos depict improvised pick guns designed 
by the author out of coat hangers and clothespins. 

The pick gun has been a boon to professional locksmithing, law 

enforcement and national security. Due to the potential for abuse, 

however, this book is offered for informational purposes only.

INTRODUCTION 

The right to self defense is the 
right to life itself. But what good is 
the "right" to defend yourself if you 
lack the knowledge and training to 
actually do it? Obviously, the gov- 
ernment police cannot protect you. 
You must therefore take care of 
yourself. 

This is our Self Defense Sec- 
tion. In it you will find the world's 
finest books on such subjects as 
techniques of unarmed combat, 
vital striking points, etc. Many of 
these books are unusual or even 
shocking — that is because they pull no punches (and neither 
should you!) 




THE MIND IN THE MARTIAL ARTS 

A Key to Winning 

by Thomas J. Nardi, Ph.D. 




Here at Loompanics 
Unlimited, we keep 
telling you how important 
your mind is. In street 
fighting, your mental set 
is even more important 
than your physical train- 
ing. All the techniques in 
the world aren't going to 
help you if you fly into a 
panic, or a reckless 
rage, or otherwise lose 
control of yourself men- 
tally. The Mind in the 
Martial Arts belongs 
with Jeff Cooper's Princi- 
ples of Personal 
Defense as a book that 
should be read along 
with books on self- 
defense techniques. 
From the introduction: 

"The total martial 
artist is one who has 
successfully developed 
and integrated the physi- 
cal and the psychological aspects of combat. The physical aspects 
are perhaps more easily understood and learned. These involve the 
basic stances, the specific techniques, the body conditioning, etc. In 
short, these are the behaviors of combat: the 'how-to' aspects of mar- 
tial arts. 

"Man is a thinking, feeling and behaving creature. Moreover, it is 
man's thinking which to a large extent determines his feelings (that is, 
his emotions) and his behaviors. Thinking involves the conscious 
mind and the subconscious mind. The martial artist can greatly 
enhance his martial arts ability and also become an emotionally 
healthier person by controlling and directing his thinking. This book 
will teach you how to reprogram your thinking on a conscious and 
subconscious level."

BLACK MEDICINE 

Volume One: The Dark Art of Death 

by N. Mashiro, Ph.D. 

This book presents the most thorough and intriguing discussion of 
the human body's vital points ever to appear in a single volume. 
Through strikingly realistic photographs and detailed line drawings, 
Mashiro illustrates over 150 parts of the human body where a mini- 
mum amount of force will produce a maximum impact on a person's 
ability to fight. The study of these vital points is integral to all branches 
of the martial arts, to the military combat specialist, and to everyone 
concerned with self-defense in a life-or-death encounter. 

Highly recommended — buy now, so you will have the knowledge 
when you need it!

BLACK MEDICINE II 
Weapons at Hand 
by N. Mashiro, Ph.D. 

Self-defense specialists take note: Here is a sequel to N. 
Mashiro's infamous Black Medicine, Vol. 1: The Dark Art of Death. 
That book revealed the 150 parts of the human body most vulnerable 
in hand-to-hand combat. Black Medicine II: Weapons at Hand takes 
the opposite approach. It ffresents 112 parts of the body that are nat- 
ural weapons, largely because they are very injury-resistant. 

Following this is a section that lists for you more than 180 deadly 
makeshift weapons that can save your life in a crisis. The weapons 
are all improvised from such common everyday items as phonograph 
records, combs, hubcaps, and even your housecat! Over 50 action 
photos show the reader exactly how to use the "black medicine" tech- 
niques discussed in Black Medicine II: Weapons at Hand. Espe- 
cially suited to the needs of bodyguards, security personnel, and 
martial artists, this book is also highly recommended for the average 
citizen.

BLACK MEDICINE III 

Low Blows 

by N. Mashiro, Ph.D. 

Long awaited by self-defense specialists around the globe, Low 
Blows is the third volume in N. Mashiro's infamous Black Medicine 
Series. In Volume 3, Mashiro presents his favorite techniques for 
bringing the body's natural weapons into violent and painful contact 
with an opponent's vulnerable areas. 

Low Blows reveals devastating responses to wrist holds, 
punches, chokes, rear attacks, bear hugs, and special defenses 
against knife and club attackers. Especially noteworthy is a chapter 
on fighting a standing opponent from the ground (this trick alone could 
save your life!). Mashiro goes on to critique many commonly taught 
self-defense methods that he feels are suicide. 

Over 90 dramatic photos illustrate the holds and moves in Low 
Blows, making it substantially longer than the other two volumes in 
this series. An excellent self-study guide for beginners, and an eye- 
opening reference work for advanced students and instructors. Be 
warned: Low Blows is not for readers with weak stomachs. Buy it 
now, before you need to use these secrets on the streets...

THE DIRTY DOZEN 

12 Nasty Fighting Techniques 

for Any Self-Defense Situation 

by Larry Jordan 

U.S. Army Special Forces veteran 
Larry Jordan was given a unique 
assignment by his commanders — 
come up with a truly down-and-dirty 
hand-to-hand fighting system for his 
fellow Green Berets and U.S. Army 
Rangers. The goal of this system 
was to give soldiers a handful of 
hard-core techniques that could be 
easily learned, easily mastered, and 
effectively applied in any close-com- 
bat situation. Jordan devised a set of 
12 techniques that were surprisingly 
simple, shockingly fast, and brutally 
effective. He has now adapted this 
military system for civilian self- 
defense. He calls it "The Dirty 
Dozen." 

The 12 self-defense lessons in this book are specifically designed 
to provide the average citizen with a series of easily learned tech- 
niques that will enable him or her to prevail in any violent situation. 
Besides the ever-present threat of violent crime, the recent terrorist 
attacks aboard commercial airliners show that people can no longer 
rely on "somebody else" to protect them. It is the responsibility of 
everyone to prepare themselves to resist and defeat evildoers. That's 
where The Dirty Dozen comes in.

A BOUNCER'S GUIDE TO BARROOM BRAWLING 

Dealing with the Sucker Puncher, 

Streetf ighter, and Ambusher 

by Peyton Quinn 

In a barroom brawl, where 
your assailant doesn't care how 
pretty he looks when he blind 
sides you and then stomps you 
into a bloody mess, the formal 
and flashy moves you practiced in 
the dojo will be useless. Peyton 
Quinn knows. 

As a bouncer in a biker bar, 
having been attacked by fists, 
boots, pool cues and knives, 
Quinn has learned a thing or two 
about what goes down in a real 
fight. As a black belt, he has also 
learned that martial arts training is 
useful, but it is no substitute for 
experience. Quinn has separated 
fighting fact from fantasy, and the 
result is a unique guide that can 
save your ass in places where the 
brawling is quick, dirty and very violent. 

Quinn reveals the psychology, strengths and weaknesses of a 
sucker puncher; the characteristics of a real fight (you might be sur- 
prised); and tips for dealing with aggressive people and ambushes. 
He then presents two basic moves that can be applied to most every 
attack, effective counterstrikes that he has used dozens of times to 
defeat larger opponents, and secrets of grappling and escapes. 
Accounts of his own battles illustrate key points about techniques and 
concepts. Finally, he takes a critical and practical look at the most 
popular martial arts in the U.S.

CAO DAI KUNG-FU 

Lost Fighting Arts of Vietnam 

by Dr. Haha Lung 

Dr. Haha Lung begins with an 
overview of the land and charac- 
teristics of the people, giving 
readers the basis for an under- 
standing of Vietnam's history 
and how this contributed to the 
rise of the Cao Dai religion. 

The author reminds us that 
the word "martial" means "war." 
While there may be beauty in a 
perfectly performed practice ses- 
sion, this "art" aspect takes a 
backseat to the "martial" in a life 
and death struggle. The purpose 
of martial arts, after all, is to 
complement your war arsenal. In 
a battlefield situation, unarmed 
martial arts are what you use 
between weapons. The purpose of Cao Dai Kung-Fu is to teach you 
how to get that arsenal fully armed. 

To this end the martial arts instructions in this book are written in 
an easy to understand manner with helpful illustrations and diagrams, 
so that even one uninitiated in the martial arts can find useful tips to 
store away in preparation for self defense in general. 

Contents include: • Can Qua: "Shield and Spear" • The Three 
"Knows" • Long Nhan: The Way of the Cao Dai Warrior • Bihn Co: 
"Strategy and Tactics" • Methods of Movement • Blocking • Striking • 
Where to Strike • How to Strike • Grappling • Combat with Weapons • 
The Five Kinds of Weapons • "The Eight Sounds" • Am Hiem: Sub- 
terfuge and Stealth • Dae Vien: Special Agents; Special Skills • And 
much, much more. 

Dr. Haha Lung says to use whatever you can that works — head- 
butting, kicking the side of the knee; there's all kinds of useful infor- 
mation you will be glad you have some day. For instance, "Modern 
day street fighters often dip their fingers into bleach, hot sauce, or any 
toxic substance that can then be thrust into an opposing fighter's 
eyes, nose and mouth during a no-holds-barred fight." Or "Any time 
your hand touches the ground fill it with something: dirt, a rock, a 
stick, etc. Snowball is better than no ball." 

Anything on your body — your head, feet, elbows, knees, hands 
— can be used to disable your opponent. Your options as to where 
and how to strike into your opponent will be limited only by your imag- 
ination.

DESPERATE MEASURES 

Unarmed Self-Defense Against Guns, 

Knives, and Clubs 

by Michael Vassolo 

If you were staring down the barrel 
of an attacker's gun, would you be 
saying a prayer to save your soul or 
taking the decisive action that could 
save your life? It's your choice, but if 
you think it's a decision you can put off 
until an actual confrontation, you 
might as well start praying now. 

In this brutally realistic manual, 
kenpo karate 7th-degree black belt 
Michael Vassolo details the self- 
defense techniques you must know 
before you find yourself unarmed and 
at the mercy of a criminal wielding a 
handgun, knife, or club. As Vassolo 
teaches, anything less than total ruth- 
lessness just gets in the way of effec- 
tive, life-saving action. 
With step-by-step photographs and clear instructions, you will 
learn to master the all-out, last-resort techniques that could keep you 
alive against seemingly impossible odds. Vassolo's straightforward, 
easy-to-understand approach concentrates on keeping moves simple 
so when the time comes you will be calm, focused, and ready to 
strike. The violent maneuvers in this book won't help you win a trophy 
in a ring, but they could save you from an early grave.

to Save Your Ass When Things Get Ugly 

by Marc "Animal" MacYoung 

There Is no moment of enlight- 
enment more terrible, says Marc 
"Animal" MacYoung, than when you 
have the sickening realization that 
you're outflanked and outgunned. 
You've brought a knife to a gunfight. 
If you don't have your shit together 
when this happens, it could be the 
last realization of your life. This 
book is about what you can do to 
survive just such a moment. 

This book will show you that 
there's no dishonor in withdrawal. 
Long-term survival isn't a matter of 
clashing head-on with every prob- 
lem that comes along. If s knowing 
when to be hard and when to be 
soft; when to run with the ferocity of 
a wolf and then turn and strike 
when you have the upper hand 
again. Against a gang, the only thing one man can do in a head-on 
conflict is get killed. But the person who knows how to apply hit-and- 
run tactics, utilize the environment, and use his enemies' weaknesses 
against them can turn from a ghost to a tiger to a ghost again. That 
person is a true martial artist, one who can survive the chaos of being 
hunted and turn the game back on his hunters. Once you've taken in 
the lessons of this book, you will be such a warrior.

REAL WORLD SELF-DEFENSE 

A Guide to Staying Alive in Dangerous Times 

by Jerry VanCook 



For those who seek practical 
solutions to the violence that per- 
meates today's society, Real 
World Self-Defense offers savvy 
advice for dealing with everything 
from an unwarranted physical 
attack to the often ironic legal 
aftermath. As a former under- 
cover police officer who has 
devoted much of his life to study- 
ing martial arts and training with 
weapons, author Jerry VanCook 
knows from personal experience 
what works — both on the street 
and in the courthouse — and what 
doesn't. 

Pulling no punches, VanCook 
explains the need for every think- 
ing man and woman to develop a 
working personal defense system. 
More importantly, he strives to instill the mind-set required to put that 
system to work when violence strikes. His simple, streamlined 
approach to self-defense keeps the focus on survival rather than 
fancy techniques that are more suited to sport or art. Presenting tac- 
tics and techniques that are basic, easy to learn, and proven effective 
under the stress of combat, VanCook covers everything from 
unarmed defense to improvised weapons to edged weapons and 
firearms. 

Entertaining, hard-hitting, and tactically on the mark, this is a book 

that people from all walks of life can thoroughly enjoy and learn from.

CHAMPIONSHIP STREETFIGHTING 

Boxing as a Martial Art 

by Ned Beaumont 

Why is it that most street fights 
begin and end with punches? It's 
because making a fist — which is 
the basis of all boxing technique — 
is a natural reflex when it comes to 
self-defense. And in street fights and 
barroom brawls, it's unlikely that one 
or both of the combatants will try to 
use a Hollywood-inspired kung-fu 
kick or somersaulting flying-scissors 
takedown. In spite of this, no one 
has approached boxing as a martial 
art until now! But in Championship 
Streetfighting, author Ned Beau- 
mont, a seasoned and savvy street 
fighter who routinely takes out oppo- 
nents who make the mistake of try- 
ing to use karate, jujitsu, tae kwon 
do, and other Asian martial arts, 
trains the willing reader in what has proven to be one of the most 
effective fighting arts ever unleashed on society: boxing! 

This fascinating, hard-hitting manual is the first practical guide to 
debunk the many myths associated with what Beaumont shows to be 
painful, even fatal fighting philosophies and styles which are practiced 
by so many "strip-mall karatekas" and self-proclaimed martial-arts 
"masters," and instead instruct the reader in how to employ boxing 
techniques as a superior martial art form! 

Next time Mr. Karate Man tries to kick you in the leg, just punch 
him in the face and watch what happens. He'll be on the pavement 
faster than you can say "intensive care." 

So, get ready to rumble — by reading Championship Street- 
fighting today!

BOXING'S DIRTY TRICKS 

AND OUTLAW KILLER PUNCHES 

by Jay C. "Champ" Thomas 

Before there was "Ulti- 
mate Fighting," men like 
Jay C. "Champ" Thomas 
made their livings beating 
each other senseless and 
occasionally dying in the 
ring. Thomas, author of 
Boxing's Dirty Tricks 
and Outlaw Killer 
Punches, is an American 
fighting legend. Beginning 
in 1 923, Thomas's career 
as a boxer, wrestler and 
boombattler spanned 
nearly six decades! A vet- 
eran of over 10,000 bouts, 
Thomas successfully 
defended himself against 
some of the world's 
fiercest aggressors, and 
killed his opponents on 
several occasions. Now 
he shares his secrets with 
those who wish to study 
the real manly arts! 

Learn how to deter and overcome opponents by: • Using your 
gloves' laces as weapons • Thumbing and elbowing your way to vic- 
tory • Breaking your victims' feet • Dealing potent low blows • Destroy- 
ing your adversaries with resin • Choking your foes. 

Thomas used these tricks and punches only to defend himself 
against unscrupulous fighters, and he cautions against employing 
them recklessly. In order to defend oneself, it's important to know all 
of the distasteful options that can be brought into play. Now, for the 
first time, they are discussed openly in Boxing's Dirty Tricks and

JUSTIFIABLE HOMICIDE 

The Intelligent Use of Deadly Force 

by Denny Hansen 

When can you legally shoot an intruder in your home? 

This question is on every person's mind when they hear a loud 
bang in the middle of the night or a knock on the door at three a.m. 
Many citizens exercise their constitutional right to keep firearms in 
their home for self-defense. But what happens if you are compelled to 
fire your weapon at a home invader? The editor of S.W.A.T. maga- 
zine, retired Deputy Sheriff Denny Hansen, explains the answers to 
these most-asked questions in great detail: 

• What legal and moral issues will you face? 

• What kind of weapon should you use when shooting indoors? A 
shotgun? A revolver? A semi-auto pistol? 

• Which weapon is best? What caliber? 

• What kind of ammo is best for indoor shooting? 

• What can you do to make your home more secure? What should 
you do if you are carjacked? 

This book gives you the ability to be one step ahead of some 
scumbag who may someday threaten your property or possibly your 
life. This is a "must read" for anyone who has a weapon in their home, 
and wants to protect themselves and their family. You may have the 
courage to shoot an intruder, but you must also have the knowledge 
to deal with the aftermath, and this book provides it.

HOW TO BE AN ASS-WHIPPING BOXER 
by J.C. "Champ"Thomas 

When Champ Thomas was nearly sixty, he took on twenty chal- 
lengers and beat them in less than fifteen minutes. This wasn't even a 
light workout for him, he'd say; in his time, he'd taken on a hundred. 
After Champ Thomas had defeated the world-famous Bobo Brazil, an 
announcer said, Thomas has been in the business of destroying ath- 
letic opponents for more than a quarter of a century. He's a master 
performer, an unbeatable showman, a great promoter and a superior 
instructor. He's a champion in all areas of his profession." 

Jay C. "Champ" Thomas has been an icon on the American box- 
ing scene for decades. His books have been a step-by-step road map 
to success for countless boxers, whether they were beginners, ama- 
teurs, professionals or just someone who wanted to know more about 
boxing and the art of self-defense. 

Champ himself saw his boxing manuals as a way for aspiring box- 
ers and pros alike to become first-rate contenders without spending 
hundreds or thousands of dollars on personal trainers or managers 
that may not deliver all that they promise. This volume is actually a 
compilation of some of Champ's best work, and provides both an 
overview of what it takes to win and in-depth instruction in how to do 
it. What were originally published as individual manuals are pre- 
sented as sections of this book, sections that deal with various 
aspects of boxing and the art of self-defense. The books are pre- 
sented essentially as written, complete with introductions written by 
admirers and former students. They are also presented in the chrono- 
logical order in which they were written and, as such, provide inter- 
esting insight to the careful reader as to how Champ's writing skills, 
along with the refinement of the 'Thomas Technique," developed over 
the years. A brief editor's note precedes each section, providing an 
overview of what is about to be read, along with the date of publica- 
tion. 

Contents include: • How to Create a Super Boxer • Boxing's 
Stonewall Defense • How to Train and Condition Boxers • How to 
Develop Boxing's Best Stance • How to Develop Boxing's Best Foot- 
work • How to Develop Boxing's Best Left Jab • How to Develop Box- 
ing's Best Left Hook • How to Develop Boxing's Best Knockout Punch 
• How to Develop Boxing's Superior Strategy and Win • And much 
more. 

Have fun with this volume; there's a load of information in here if 
you follow Champ's advice and read each section carefully, perhaps 
more than once. After all, his challenge to us is to practice excellence. 
"I've given perfect examples," he writes. "Now it's your job to surpass 
the perfection herein." 

Loompanics Unlimited is very proud to present Champ Thomas' 
How to Be an Ass-Whipping Boxer. Listen and pay attention, now...

THE BIGGER THEY ARE, 

THE HARDER THEY FALL 

How to Defeat a Larger and 

Stronger Adversary in a Street Fight 

by Sammy Franco 

When you're facing a thug on the 
street and you have to look up to 
stare into his eyes, you're bound to 
feel a pang of fear. But follow the 
solid strategies and techniques pre- 
sented by martial arts maverick and 
innovator Sammy Franco, and the 
fight will end with your attacker look- 
ing up at you in confusion as he 
crashes to the ground in defeat. 

The founder and creator of Con- 
temporary Fighting Arts — a scientific 
and practical combat system 
designed to conquer both armed and 
unarmed assailants — Franco was 
concerned that no book on the mar- 
ket successfully tackled the specific 
problem of facing a larger, stronger 
opponent. In The Bigger They Are, The Harder They Fall, he 
addresses that all-important issue and delivers the solid information 
you'll need to survive a street fight when the odds seem stacked 
against you. 

In an easy-to-read question and answer format, Franco calls upon 
his many years of expertise as an instructor to prepare you both men- 
tally and physically for the fight of your life. There may very well come 
a day when you will face an opponent who can dominate you through 
sheer mass and strength. Read this book before that day comes.

ple who exhibit intimidating, menac- 
ing, and sometimes outright violent 
behavior. Ed Lewis has faced more 
than a thousand such confrontations 
as part of a professional restraint 
team at a mental health facility as 
well as on the streets as a private 
investigator, and in those environ- 
ments he discovered the psychologi- 
cal and physical secrets of defusing 
such hostile subjects or, if neces- 
sary, restraining their attacks. In 
Hostile Ground, he gives you a 
graduate course in such topics as: • 
Handling fear during a confrontation 
• Recognizing different types of 
aggressors • Identifying common 
reasons for assaultive behavior • Reading body language for signs of 
impending violence • Defusing a hostile situation • Managing physical 
assaults if all else fails. 

The book concludes with real-life accounts of how professionals 
and civilians alike have used Lewis' techniques to handle potentially 
explosive situations. Whether your job puts you in harm's way or 
you're simply an ordinary citizen who interacts with the public on a 
daily basis, you will learn from this book.

KILL-AS-CATCH-CAN 

Wrestling Skills for Streetfighting 

by Ned Beaumont 

Sure, you know how to punch and kick, but how well can you fight 
at shorter range? Can you defend yourself when the fight turns to 
grappling? When both you and your opponent are rolling around and 
wrestling on the barroom floor, are you confident that you can win the 
fight? 

If you doubt your chances at close quarters, then you're not pre- 
pared for the reality of streetfighting. That's because, as author Ned 
Beaumont points out in Kill-as-Catch-Can: Wrestling Skills for 
Streetfighting, in the real world, fights frequently begin with or turn 
into bouts of wrestling, and the antagonist with the greater expertise 
in wrestling is most often the victor. 

Kill-as-Catch-Can: Wrestling Skills for Streetfighting is a no- 
nonsense primer that can effectively guide the reader to an enhanced 
awareness of wrestling methodology, and provide streetfighters with 
the edge it takes to come out on top. The book includes sections on: 

The military and police experience 

The importance of practice 

Wrestling and restraint 

Wrestling around the world and through the centuries 

Pro wrestling: how fake is fake? 

The seven basic wrestling skills 

Lessons on stance, mobility, tie-ups, grips, distractions, and more 

Sizing up an adversary 

And much, much more! 

The truly tough customer is the person who thoroughly conditions 
himself, diligently studies and practices wrestling holds and tech- 
niques, and then makes full use of them in rough-and-tumble situa- 
tions. By reading Kill-as-Catch-Can: Wrestling Skills for 
Streetfighting and employing the methods it outlines, you can gain 
superiority in future altercations! Learn to prevail in the street!

FIGHTING WITH STICKS 
by Nick Evangelista 

Errol Flynn, Bruce Lee and Sean Connery did it. So did Medieval 
swordsmen and African warriors who wielded their oars as weapons. 
It's the ancient art of stick fighting, revered and explained'in the pages 
of this book. 

You'll learn the comprehensive history of the stick and all its forms: 
shepherd's crook, wooden swords, canes and foils are just a few. 
Detailed lists provide places where you can locate special equipment 
and organizations. The step-by-step approach makes stick fighting 
safe and fun. In this book, you'll find: • How to play variations of the 
singlestick game • The proper way to hold your body and your stick 
for games and real-life combat situations • How to make canes, walk- 
ing sticks and singlesticks • Sportsmanship and attire for the stick- 
fighting realm. 

Why sticks? Because they're handy, easy to operate, and don't 
require ammunition or a license. And in the event of a societal break- 
down or nuclear holocaust, you'd still be able to find a stick — ■ and 
use it.

DRAGON'S TOUCH 

Weaknesses of the Human Anatomy 

by Master Hei Long 

Drop your opponent in an instant with the deadly moves of the 
Dragon's Touch! 

Learn how you can immobilize or destroy your foe with high- 
impact blows to his most vulnerable areas. Master Hei Long explains 
which pressure points are the most susceptible to Dragon strikes and 
which angles you should use in applying force. The body's forty-three 
major target areas are explicitly illustrated, and 165 photographs 
show you how to attack each pressure point with the self-defense 
moves of Lian Shi Kung Fu. 

The body's weaknesses and psychological reactions can work in 
your favor in a combat situation. Sufficient force to specific target 
areas can cause pain, shock, paralysis, unconsciousness — even 
death. Each deadly set of movements can ensure that you are in con- 
trol. 

Be the survivor — not the victim. The techniques of the Dragon's 
Touch can keep you alive and achieve knockout results.

FIGHTING POWER 

How to Develop Explosive Punches, 

Kicks, Blocks, and Grappling 

by Loren Christensen

isn't enough: developing speed without power will leave you quick 
and dead. In Fighting Power, Christensen turns his attention to 
power, and shows how to develop it by: • Examining the most up-to- 
date modern techniques as well as classic exercises — some of them 
thousands of years old — and instructing the practitioner in how to 
use both to increase flexibility and power. • Demonstrating how Bruce 
Lee knocked down opponents by using his unique one-inch punching 
technique — and how the reader can learn to do it too. • And, just in 
case one's opponent is reading this book as well, teaching the martial 
arts enthusiast how to defend himself against someone with 
extraordinary power!

GUGE GONGJI 

Seven Primary Targets 

to Take Anyone Out of a Fight 

by Master Hei Long 

Structurally disabling an opponent is like removing the bullets from 
his gun. It is unlikely that he can throw a punch at you with a broken 
wrist or elbow, and his ability to advance is substantially inhibited by a 
busted knee or ankle. That is the principle of guge gongji: stopping an 
attacker by breaking his instrument of danger. In unarmed combat, 
that means his ability to move and strike. 

Guge Gongji is an alternative to killing, a second-to-last resort 
that should be used only when conventional self-defense tactics are 
likely to be ineffective. Master Hei Long's precise instructions and 
illustrations show you how to use your opponent's body as your 
weapon. Learn the seven primary targets guaranteed to take anyone 
out of a fight.

THE SAVAGE SCIENCE OF STREETFIGHTING 

Applying the Lessons of Championship Boxing 

to Serious Street Survival 

by Ned Beaumont 

Most streetfights are decided not by fancy karate kicks or grap- 
pling holds, but by knockout blows to the head, contends Ned Beau- 
mont. So here he takes an in-depth look at the "secret" punches of the 
champs — Kid McCoy's Corkscrew Punch, Floyd Patterson's Kanga- 
roo Punch, Kid Gavilan's Bolo Punch, Georges Carpentier's Waltz 
Punch — and why they worked like magic in the ring. In addition, 
Beaumont examines the various elements of power-punching for 
knockouts, including range, follow-through, accuracy, timing, and 
speed. He also delves into the nuances of counterpunching, including 
rhythm, timing, and movement; advanced defensive skills such as 
guards and stances; and ways to use boxing against weapons, in a 
gang attack, or in enclosed spaces. Finally, because the hard work 
that makes up every boxer's training is ideal for building the high level 
of fitness that may give you the edge on the street, Beaumont pres- 
ents a program of advanced training and conditioning targeted specif- 
ically for the demands of a lightning fast, explosive, and violent 
streetfight. The Savage Science of Streetfighting is an entertaining 
yet pragmatic approach to surviving the all-out savagery of a street- 
fight.

WAR WITH EMPTY HANDS 
Self-Defense Against Aggression 
by Lenox Cramer 

This book is written by a leading expert in "Empty Hand" self- 
defense. Lenox Cramer has put into words, photographs, and 
illustrations the science of his expertise, explaining in easy-to- 
understand terms how you can quickly learn and comprehend these 
proven methods! 

When one of Lenox Cramer's case officers in Vietnam was on a 
covert operation in Beirut, Lebanon, several Druse militia men tried to 
capture him inside his hotel room. They were armed with various 
weapons, including one firearm. This former US intelligence officer 
killed three of his attackers with his bare hands using the same self- 
defense fighting techniques that are taught in this book! 

Whether the fight is on the streets of Attackerville, USA, the brutal 

jungles of Southeast Asia, or the equally brutal jungles of South 

America, these self-defense methods have been used and tested 

under real battlefield conditions successfully. It is the true desire of 

the author, his warrior comrades, and the publisher that if you or your 

loved ones are ever confronted by a violent attacker, War With 

Empty Hands will give you the assurance that you are capable of 

protecting yourself and your loved ones in life-threatening situations.

TAKE NO PRISONERS 

Destroying Enemies with Dirty 

and Malicious Tricks 

by Mack Nasty 



♦khbibs 



This is a no-holds-barred 
guide to dirty tricks, far more 
powerful and destructive than 
those found in "Harassment" 
and "Revenge" books. Milder 
techniques will do for certain 
annoying people, but sometimes 
they don't go far enough. 

Let's say someone has 
caused you to lose your job, and 
that the consequences have 
been serious for you. Losing 
your job also had the effect of 
breaking up your family, or caus- 
ing you to lose your home 
because you couldn't keep up 
mortgage payments. This calls 
for more than just a few dirty 
tricks for revenge, but there's no 
other way to get back at him. 
Assault, even if you beat the liv- 
ing daylights out of him, will only land you in deeper trouble. You need 
ways of hurting him back, ways that won't land you in jail or put you in 
a more difficult situation. 

The techniques described in this book are heavy-duty. Some are 
designed to harm or maim your target, or frame him for a serious 
crime. Others will cause expensive property damage. Still others will 
cost him large amounts of money, directly or indirectly. Sold for infor- 
mational purposes only.

More Dirty Tricks from the Master of Revenge 

by George Hayduke 

In the good old days, if somebody did you wrong, you asked him 
to step outside and settle the score with fists or guns. Today, it is not 
that simple. Our complex, law-ridden society has effectively stifled the 
spirit of revenge by lowering the legal boom on anyone using those 
old time-honored methods. But there are ways to strike out anony- 
mously at those vexing individuals who make life miserable for you. 
Get even without resorting to violence, risking a prison stay, or even 
letting your target know you are the one chipping away at his sanity. 

Now George Hayduke, master dirty trickster, has produced a 
sequel to his best-selling Get Even. Get Even 2 presents a wide 
range of all-new dirty tricks you can pull to get even with big business, 
lousy landlords, bureaucrats, and rip-off artists of all types. The little

GASLIGHTING 

How to Drive Your Enemies Crazy 

by Victor Santoro 

You know what's wrong with the world? Too many assholes and 
not enough ways to get even! Now there's a safe, effective way for 
you to get even without putting yourself in any danger. It's called 
"gaslighting," and it's guaranteed to turn your target's life upside 
down. "Gaslighting" means to drive someone crazy. It comes from the 
1 944 film Gaslight, in which a husband convinces his wife she's losing 
her mind. Gaslighting is the most potent form of psychological warfare 
you can use without a license. 

In Gaslighting: How to Drive Your Enemies Crazy, Victor San- 
toro (The "Godfather of Harassment") shows you how to destroy your 
target's confidence, self-esteem and reputation. Through a series of 
small incidents, your target gets progressively more confused, until 
he's "reduced to a shapeless mass of shivering, quivering jelly." If 
you've been mistreated, you don't have to take it and you don't have 
to fight back. There is a third route — Gaslighting — WHERE YOU

SCREW THE BITCH! 

Divorce Tactics for Men 

by Dick Hart 

You said "for better or worse," but you never imagined it could get 
this bad. How bad? You come home from work to find your wife has 
left — and she's taken every stick of furniture with her. Before leaving 
town, your wife drained your bank account, maxed-out your credit 
cards, and wrote a fistful of bad checks. Your wife wins custody of the 
kids and child support — by falsely accusing you of molesting the chil- 
dren. 

Separation and divorce are always emotionally devastating. They 
can also be a financial disaster. The law is stacked in favor of wives, 
and you can bet "The Bitch" will be looking out for Number One. 
You've got to have a plan if you want to keep from doing something 
stupid, something that's going to cost you for a long, long time. Screw 
the Bltchl will show you how to protect yourself — how to take 
charge and stay in control — how to get through a divorce without los- 
ing your assets, or your pride. Screw the Bltchl is a book that has 
been needed for quite some time. It can save you loads of money and

On June 30, 2002, two Iowa youths escaped 
from a school for troubled teenagers. For twelve 
hours, they terrorized the Woods community, steal- 
ing four automobiles and managing to evade cap- 
ture by police. According to the Rapid City 
Journal, Pete Paul Fast Horse and Jeremy Feltman 
were in a stolen Ford four-wheel-drive when they 
"sped through an intersection and crashed into an 
embankment." 

They then fled on foot from pursuing police and 
approached the house of Sena Lauritzen. When the 
55-year-old grandmother saw the fugitives 
attempting to enter her house through a patio door, 
she grabbed a shotgun and held them until police 
arrived. "This is my little bit of heaven," she said 
after the incident. "They had no right to invade it."

being fired. In other instances, citizens use guns to 
incapacitate or kill criminals. 

Even as the preponderance 
of elite opinion condemns the 
evil gun, each year tens of 
thousands of Americans use 
firearms to save themselves 
and others. 

In the summer of 2001, a 68-year-old wheel- 
chair-bound veteran in Flint, Michigan, killed an 
assailant inside his home. Clinton Burns had 
fought for his country during the Korean War and 
had been awarded a Purple Heart. On June 11, he 
heard an intruder breaking into his apartment. As 
the man entered his bedroom, Burns grabbed a .38- 
caliber revolver from the headrest of his wheel- 
chair. Aiming it at the assailant, Burns pleaded 
with him to leave. Instead, the intruder attacked the 
homeowner. Burns had no choice but to shoot. The 
unidentified man died at the scene. Lt. Diane Gar- 
rison, commander of the Michigan state police, 
said, "A citizen has the right to protect themselves 
using up to and including deadly force." The only 
report of the story was in a local newspaper. 

In another case that the national media deemed 
"un-newsworthy," South Carolina resident Conita 
Sims shot Reginald Dewayne Wheeler after he 
attacked her with a shotgun. Sims had filed a 
"domestic violence warrant" for the arrest of 
Wheeler after she had been the victim of several 
beatings and "terroristic threats" from her former 
boyfriend. On the afternoon that she obtained the 
warrant, he showed up at her home and used a 
shotgun to blast the knob off the front door. But as 
he entered, Sims herded her children behind her, 
pulled a handgun, and fired several shots. One bul- 
let struck Wheeler in the chest, dropping him in his 
tracks. He survived but was later charged with 
numerous crimes. Sheriff Howard Sellers said, 
"Sims acted in a legal and responsible manner, and 
for that reason there will be no charges brought 
against her." 

And so it goes. "Rare" and "un-newsworthy" as 
they are, these cases seem to keep occurring. 

On April 2, 2002, a Lebanon, Oregon, business 
owner shot and killed a robber. Kevin Skaggs was 
at the counter of the Quick Cash Payday Advance 
when a man wearing a Scream mask walked in. 



The robber indicated that he had a gun and wanted 
money. Skaggs pulled his own gun and shot Jef- 
frey Gordon Duncan in the chest. The assailant 
fled, running down the railroad tracks near the 
store. He was found dead a few blocks away. "If 
there is one good thing that comes out of this," 
Skaggs said, "it's that people will know that we are 
not going to put up with this sort of thing." 

At 4:00 a.m., on March 9, 2002, Jason Chatham 
was asleep in his Wilkes County, North Carolina, 
mobile home when two men knocked on his front 
door. They stated that their car had broken down 
and asked to use the telephone. Since Chatham 
knew one of the men, he allowed them to enter the 
house. Once inside, they pulled guns on him, tied 
his hands in front of him with a telephone cord, 
and began to ransack the house. With his hands 
still tied, Chatham was able to retrieve a handgun 
he kept hidden in the couch. As Ted Marley Baker 
(one of the intruders) reached for his own weapon, 
the homeowner fired. The bullet struck Baker in 
the neck, killing him. His accomplice fled and was 
later arrested. Chatham was not charged with any 
crime. 

A report in the Dallas Morning News on Sep- 
tember 12, 2002, described the ordeal of Dr. David 
Avery and his wife Patricia. As the couple backed 
their pickup truck into the driveway of their McK- 
inney, Texas, home, a car pulled in front of them, 
blocking their way out. A masked man jumped 
from the car, stuck an AK-47 in David Avery's 
face, and ordered him to lie on the ground. As 
Avery complied, Patricia Avery positioned herself 
behind the truck, pulled a .38-caliber revolver 
from her purse, and began firing at the assailant. 
He returned fire, his heavy slugs slamming into the 
truck. Undeterred, Patricia kept shooting. Finally, 
the woman's firepower drove the assailant back to 
his car. He fled, but the abandoned car was later 
found by police. At the time the article was written, 
the assailant hadn't been captured, but blood in a 
nearby field suggested that he had been wounded. 
David and Patricia Avery were unharmed, though 
shaken. "I told her she was a hero," Dr. Avery said 
of his wife. 

When police stopped a car south of Chat- 
tanooga, Tennessee, a passenger, Derrick Middle- 
brooks, fled. He kicked down the door of a nearby 
apartment and ran inside, screaming. According to 
news reports, the resident awoke and "told Middle-

brooks to leave and that he had a gun. Middle- 
brooks ran towards the bedroom where the home- 
owner was, still screaming, and the homeowner 
told Middlebrooks again to leave." Finally, the res- 
ident fired, hitting the intruder in the shoulder. 
Middlebrooks ran back outside and was promptly 
arrested. The assailant had numerous warrants for 
domestic assault, aggravated burglary, and proba- 
tion violation. 

In Anchorage, Alaska, two men broke into the 
house of Normandy veteran Roy Lee Hendricks. 
During World War II, Hendricks, a member of the 
82nd Airborne Division, had parachuted behind 
enemy lines on D-Day. On the night of August 11, 
2002, the veteran awoke and saw two hooded men 
standing at his bedside. They demanded his bill- 
fold, and when he tried to get up, they pushed him 
down. As the men began beating Hendricks, he 
grabbed a .22-caliber Derringer from his dresser. 
The homeowner placed the barrel of the gun 
against the arm of one of his assailants and pulled 
the trigger. "They were burning the turf to get outta 
here once I started shooting," Hendricks said. A 
neighbor heard the gunshots, grabbed a gun, and 
rushed to Hendricks's aid. They held the wounded 
robber at gunpoint until police arrived. The second 
man pushed open a window and fled. During the 
fight, a bullet grazed the tip of the veteran's pinkie 
finger. Hendricks, in an interview with the Anchor- 
age Daily News, said, "I never ran in my life, and I 
don't intend to now." 

After two home invaders in Memphis were 
killed by armed residents in a two- week period, an 
editorial published on August 30, 2002, in a local 
newspaper stated that "the shooting deaths may 
give some would-be home invaders second 
thoughts before they size up their next targets." 
While most people would be deterred by the shoot- 
ings, it's unlikely they would have stopped one of 
the home invaders — he'd been arrested for the 
first time when he was ten years old and had com- 
mitted a steady string of crimes since. Getting 
killed was probably the best thing that could have 
happened to him. It was certainly a good thing for 
the citizens of Memphis. 

The 7,000 documented sto- 
ries in my files would indicate 
that these cases are not 
"rare." 



But were these cases "rare"? The 7,000 docu- 
mented stories in my files would indicate that 
they're not. 

On the night of September 17, 2002, two resi- 
dents of Rochester, New York, killed home 
invaders in separate incidents. In each case, the 
intruders were violent career criminals. And in 
each case, homeowners with legally owned 
firearms refused to be intimidated and defended 
themselves and their families. 

On August 24, 2002, Steven D. Robey, who had 
a Florida permit to carry a concealed weapon, was 
vacationing with his sixteen-year-old daughter in 
Fort Myers when two men forced their way into 
his motel room. One intruder, armed with a hand- 
gun, ordered Robey to lie on the bed while the sec- 
ond man forced his daughter into the bathroom. 
(Police surmised that he planned to rape the girl.) 
Robey pulled a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol 
from beneath his pillow and opened fire. Phillip 
Nelson was hit in the chest and died at the scene. 
Ernest Major was shot in the abdomen, arm, $nd 
leg. At last report, he was in intensive care in the 
Lee Memorial Hospital. The suspects were thought 
to be responsible for a string of armed robberies in 
the area. Neither Robey nor his daughter were 
injured, and Robey was not charged with any 
crime. 

So let the folks at the Brady Campaign live in 
their fantasy world. Let the national media spike 
any story of armed self-defense. And let the politi- 
cians attempt to pass new restrictions on the evil 
firearm. 

In the real world, Americans 
will continue to use guns to 
defend themselves and others. 

In the real world, Americans will continue to use

GUNS SAVE LIVES 

True Stories of Americans Defending Their Lives 

With Firearms 

by Robert A. Waters 

Guns Save Lives is filled with 
true stories of Americans who 
altered the course of their lives 
and others by their use of firearms. 
They vastly improved their own 
lives and those of their families by 
staying alive. They saved the lives 
of untold others from the violence 
the assailants were trying to com- 
mit. They changed the lives of the 
thugs significantly, at least tem- 
porarily, by sending them to jail, or 
even more significantly, and per- 
manently, by killing them outright. 
A professor at Florida State 
University believes hundreds of 
thousands of assaults, robberies, 
burglaries, rapes and murders are 
stopped each year by armed citi- 
zens. Yet most of these stories are 
not given news coverage beyond a small article in the local paper. 
The media has been muzzled, not daring to print stories that the gov- 
ernment and corporate interests do not want publicized. Robert 
Waters interviewed the citizen defenders in this book and makes their 
stories available in far greater detail than the local media dared. 

Friendly police officers give talks to children in schools about the 
horrific damage guns do to well meaning (read bumbling) citizens 
who try to defend themselves. The anti-gun lobbyists continue to harp 
on violence in our society being the fault of guns. This is the pablum 
we are fed on the nightly news. The hidden side of the gun ownership 
story is seldom told. Robert Waters gives us the other side of citizen 
defenders in this country. Those ordinary Americans who successfully 
defended their lives, their families and their homes, and, in doing so, 
proved that our founding fathers knew what they were doing when 
they gave us the right to bear arms. 

What they've been saying about Guns Save Lives: 
"Vivid and gripping. I wish all the naive people who think we can 
'reason' with attackers would read Guns Save Lives. ...this book 
amply demonstrates criminals either respect firearms or pay the con- 
sequences." — Glaire Wolfe, author of 101 Things to Do 'Til the Rev- 
olution, co-author of The State vs. The People 

"Guns Save Lives is about guns; it's about people. People who 
would be DEAD if they had followed the putrid and hateful doctrine of 
unilateral disarmament preached by Charles Schumer, Josh Sugar- 
mann, and Sarah Brady." — Boston T. Party, author of Boston's Gun 
Bible 

"Robert Waters has superbly told the story the liberal national 
media won't tell — how hundreds of thousands of ordinary Ameri- 
cans use firearms each year to protect their lives and property." — 
Steve Wampler, KCBC Radio Talk Show Host 

"Guns Save Lives places you squarely into more than a dozen 
victims' nightmares! You see the attackers' eyes, smell the victim's 
fear, and feel his or her thudding heart. And, at the end of each story, 
the victim wins. Why? Because he or she had a gun and was willing 
to use it." — Richard Stevens, author of Dial 91 1 and Die 

"Robert Waters is teaching America an important lesson. It is that 
the right to keep and bear arms is about your right to defend yourself 
and your family — and that the Second Amendment saves lives every 
day. Guns Save Lives makes a profound contribution to the cause of 
peace and human freedom." — U.S. Senator Larry E. Craig 

"Send a copy of Guns Save Lives to every victim of gun-control 

propaganda on your Christmas list... and ask them to take note of 

how many times police arrived in time to save the intended victim, 

before she had to use her own gun. Because the answer is... 'not 

even once.'" — Vin Suprynowicz, author of Send in the Waco Killers

DIAL 911 AND DIE 
The Shocking Truth About 
the Police Protection Myth 

by Richard W. Stevens 

From the Introduction by James Bovard: 

"Richard Stevens has done a great job of defogging the law for 
average Americans. Dial 911 and Die is the perfect antidote for the 
belief that people don't need guns because the police promise to pro- 
tect them from everything from terrorists to. muggers to things that go 
bump in the night. Anyone who reads Stevens' book will realize that 
their right to dial 911 when in imminent peril is often worth less than a 
plug quarter. . . . Dial 91 1 and Die goes to the heart of the debate rag- 
ing over gun control. Gun laws are an attempt to nationalize the right 
of self-defense. Politicians perennially react to the police's abject fail- 
ure to prevent crime by trying to disarm law-abiding citizens. The 
worse government fails to control crime, the more the politicians want 
to restrict individuals' rights to defend themselves. But police protec- 
tion in most places is typical government work — slow, inefficient, and 
unreliable. According to laws on the books in many states and cities, 
government has a specific, concrete obligation to disarm each citizen, 
but only an abstract obligation to defend the citizen. ... 

"Some of the most shocking cases in this book involve police who 
wrongfully or maliciously attack private citizens. The fact that govern- 
ment can recklessly endanger people's lives with little or no financial 
responsibility for the resulting deaths means that the further govern- 
ment control extends, the more citizens will be killed or injured. ... 
Stevens' book is a reminder that there is no substitute for citizens' 
owning the means to defend their own lives. Even the most advanced 
cellular phone is no substitute for a good .38 Special."

DEATH BY "GUN CONTROL" 

The Human Cost of Victim Disarmament 

by Aaron Zelman and Richard W. Stevens 

From the Introduction by James Bovard: 

"Not every firearms regulation leads inexorably to genocide. But, 
as this sweeping historical study shows, supposedly 'reasonable 
measures,' such as licensing and registration of gun owners have 
been followed too many times in recent history by government atroci- 
ties. The issue is not the supposed good intention of reformers who 
seek to reduce private gun ownership. The issue is the nature of polit- 
ical power. 

"Aaron Zelman and Richard Stevens's book vividly reviews and 
analyzes the slaughter of disarmed populaces from the Turkish 
slaughter of the Armenians to Stalin's slaughter of the peasantry to 
the Guatemalan slaughter of Indians. The book goes in-depth into the 
bloodbath that was the Third Reich, as well as the Khmer Rouge 
urban renewal experiments, Mao's depredations, and other atrocities. 
The book also recounts the abuse that Blacks suffered in the United 
States after laws were passed to disarm them — for the convenience 
of the Klan and other marauders. 

"Governments around the world have stripped hundreds of mil- 
lions of people of their right to own weapons and then left them to be 
robbed, raped, and slaughtered." ... 

"Every restriction on citizens' rights to acquire and carry firearms 
means increasing citizens' subordination to government employees 
who are authorized to carry such weapons. Broad restrictions on pri- 
vate gun ownership produce one main result: The vast increase in the 
power of politicians. But political tyranny has destroyed far more lives 
in the last century than have abusive private gun owners. Unfortu- 
nately, gun control advocates offer no solution to the problem of polit- 
ical tyranny — almost as if the problem will disappear if we all pretend 
government is our friend." 

Death By "Gun Control" belongs in the library of every advocate 
of individual liberty.

CONCEALABLE POCKET PISTOLS 

How to Choose and Use Small-Caliber Handguns 

by Terence McLeod 

Small-caliber handguns are 
often maligned as too puny for seri- 
ous self-defense, but millions of 
Americans own and carry these 
guns and have used them success- 
fully to stop violent assaults. This is 
the first book ever devoted to elimi- 
nating the many misconceptions 
about the usefulness of these popu- 
lar guns. 

"Pocket pistols" are small, easily 
concealed, inexpensive semiauto- 
matic handguns in .22, .25, .32, and 
.380 calibers. Their small size and 
hammerless design enable them to 
be easily concealed and carried so 
they are immediately accessible in 

an emergency. Their purpose is not 

to knock an assailant off his feet 

with fire-breathing power (which no handgun is capable of doing) but 
simply to deter or stop his assault by putting firepower instantly in 
your hands. 

Concealable Pocket Pistols addresses every aspect of owning, 
carrying, and shooting small-caliber handguns in a realistic manner. It 
cuts right to the chase and recommends a handful of the best pistols 
on the market today as well as the best ammunition for them. It then 
gets into the real-world issues of how to carry a concealed pocket pis- 
tol, how to shoot it under stress, and how to deal with malfunctions 
quickly and efficiently. 

In an emergency, a small-caliber pistol in the pocket is better than 
the .357 Magnum left at home. Find out what millions of Americans 
already know about these practical self-defense tools.

COWBOY ACTION PISTOL SHOOTING 

Secrets of Fast and Accurate Gunplay 

by Charles Stephens 







The fast-growing sport of cowboy 
action shooting is enjoyed in hundreds of 
clubs across America and around the 
world. These Old West aficionados — 
members of organizations such as the 
Single Action Shooting Society and the 
National congress of Old West Shootists 
— turn out in vintage duds to compete with 
replicas of the single-action revolvers 
used by the men who tamed the American 
frontier. Cowboy Action Pistol Shooting: 
Secrets of Fast and Accurate Gunplay 
will not only prepare the novice interested 
in taking up this sport but also provide 
valuable insight and expert advice to the 
intermediate and advanced shooter. Author Charles Stephens, him- 
self the descendant of Old West gunfighter Wood Hite, shares wis- 
dom gleaned from his 40 years of competitive pistol shooting to give 
cowboy action shooters the winning edge — from selecting the right 
pistols and gear to mastering the single-action revolver. 

You will also hear true stories of the Old West, from how Billy the 
Kid died to why Jesse James was really murdered as well as the story 
behind one of the bloodiest and deadliest gunfights of the American 
West — the Tuttle dance hall massacre in Newton, Kansas. If you've 
ever longed to step back in time and relive the excitement of our 
Western heritage, this is the perfect guidebook.

Quick and Dirty Methods for Fixing Firearms 

in Desperate Times

Free people need guns, and they 
need them in good working order no 
matter what the circumstances. Rag- 
nar Benson has had experience fixing 
"junk" guns in some tough places 
around the world, and here he shares 
some innovative ways to patch up, 
cobble together, and otherwise make 
operational everything from antique 
rifles still found in remote war zones to 
modern firearms suffering from 
appalling abuse. Drawing on lessons 
and stories from backwoods experts 
he's worked with under desperate con- 
ditions in Africa, the Philippines, Thai- 
land, Pakistan, and beyond, Ragnar 
tells how to employ last-resort but 
effective techniques to remove hopelessly stuck rounds, straighten 
bent barrels, replace lost parts, smooth out dented magazines, make 
repairs to some pretty hopeless stocks, scrounge up workable ammu- 
nition, and more. 

These are last-ditch, do-it-yourself methods, but they may be ail 
you'll have to fall back on deep in the bush or with your back to the 
wall — when the only things between you and the enemy are a rifle 
and the know-how to make it work.

HOMEMADE AMMO 

How to Make It, How to Reload It, How to Cache It 

by Duncan Long 

Almost any handyman with 
access to a drill press, a hacksaw, 
and some files can produce a sub- 
machine gun in a few weeks, and, 
once made, guns can last forever. 
Ammunition is another matter — a 
realization that has not escaped the 
gun-control activists. (You didn't 
really think that the gun grabbers 
would keep their greedy paws off 
your ammunition, did you?) 

Most people don't know the first 
thing about the chemistry of making 
smokeless powder. And even if you 
do, where do you get the compo- 
nents for your gunpowder? There 
may come a time when you can't just 
walk into a drugstore or chemical 
supply house and ask for it. What 

about reloading cartridges — how much do you really know about it? 
What do you do if there are no bullets available? Do you know what 
brass can be reused safely and what can't? What about primers? And 
why can't you stock up while it's still legal to buy and own cartridges? 

Homemade Ammo answers all these questions and more. Dun- 
can Long, who firmly believes that the most important tool for keeping 
yourself armed and ready to defend yourself is between your ears, 
provides all the technical know-how you need to manufacture your 
own rifle, pistol, or submachine gun ammunition from scratch. Sold for 
informational purposes only.

HANDGUNNER'S GUIDE 

Including the Art of the Quick Draw 

and Combat Shooting 

by Chic Gay lord 

In his day Chic Gaylord was the "top gun" in the world of combat 
shooting. He enjoyed a reputation as one of the fastest and most 
accurate shooters around, and even today he is considered the pre- 
miere designer of modern concealment holsters. Described as having 
the "hand of a craftsman, the eye of an artist, and the mind of a 
research scientist," Gaylord revolutionized the holster industry and, to 
a great extent, the way we view tactics and techniques to survive and 
win a gunfight. A wide variety of federal and local law enforcement 
personnel, as well as those from several European and Latin Ameri- 
can countries, have carried his rigs, and many of his most successful 
designs were inspired by the tactical demands faced by these officers 
on a daily basis. 

Chic Gaylord was also a gifted storyteller. He had a rapier wit and 
was equally clever when telling a story or giving a good account of 
himself in a variety of circumstances. Whether they involved his drink- 
ing cocktails with the President of the United States, training U.S. 
Secret Service officers in the art of speed shooting, or dating beautiful 
Hollywood stars, his stories always enthralled his audience. 

This edition of Handgunner's Guide is a faithful reproduction of 
his 1960 classic. Although many of the firearms discussed herein are 
no longer available and some of the combat tactics and techniques 
described might seem out of date, that does not mean that the infor- 
mation in it is not still relevant and tactically sound. This release will 
provide an accurate account of Chic Gaylord's genius and his craft 
and perpetuate it for new generations of shooters, which will be the 
richer for having been exposed to it. The clear and colorful language 
and step-by-step presentation make this an enjoyable book to read 
and understand.

UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES 

A Novel 

by John Ross 

We very seldom offer fiction, but this two-fisted novel portrays well 
what the government has been doing to the gun culture (and other 
decent people) for decades now — and what the "unintended conse- 
quences" of these policies might be. 

After the repeal of Prohibition, Congress passes an obscure fed- 
eral gun law, written to promote massive noncompliance and thus 
give idled Prohibition agents something to do. Three decades later, a 
boy born into a well-to-do family becomes immersed in shooting 
sports, and firearms become his lifelong passion. An expert with rifle 
and pistol who gives free personal protection classes to women, 
Henry Bowman is just one of the millions of people who comprise 
America's "gun culture." Because of his upbringing, Henry is sensi- 
tized to government's capacity to abuse its power. As years pass, 
Henry watches continued federal assaults on the gun culture with 
growing alarm. Concurrently, Henry's adult life intersects with the 
lives of two very different people: Cindy, a woman whose instincts for 
self-preservation help her survive virtual slavery inside an organized 
crime syndicate, and Ray, a lawyer who left the U.S. in 1963 and 
returns thirty years later. Now near middle age, Henry is alone at a 
friend's house one night. He uses his skills to thwart an armed break- 
in only to discover that the assault was not a burglary but a raid. 
Henry's victims are not street criminals but federal agents, and with 
mounting horror he listens to the captive survivors describe the oper- 
ation they were to carry out. 

Despite the odds, Henry has no intention of becoming a martyr. 
Henry Bowman is a resourceful man with money, intelligence, and 
motivation, and he has history on his side.

HOME WORKSHOP GUNS FOR DEFENSE 

AND RESISTANCE, VOLUME IV 

The 9mm Machine Pistol 

by Bill Holmes 

Gunsmith and author Bill Holmes continues his popular Home 
Workshop Guns for Defense series with this fourth volume, which 
instructs the reader step-by-step in the construction of both closed- 
bolt and open-bolt versions of a 9mm machine pistol. 

The completed pistol has an overall length of 16 inches (with a 6- 
inch barrel), a weight of 5 pounds, a rate of fire of 600 rounds per 
minute, and a two-stage trigger that eliminates the need for any 
switches or levers when changing the mode of fire. Holmes explains 
how to locate and use the parts and tools required, and pays special 
attention to the magazine, because the "Crime Bill" specifically pro- 
hibits the importation or manufacture of high-capacity magazines. 
Warning: Actual construction of the weapons described in this book 
may be illegal under federal, state, and local laws. The BATF actively 
pursues and prosecutes anyone who violates gun statutes. There- 
fore, this book is for academic study and information purposes only!

A DO-IT-YOURSELF SUBMACHINE GUN 

by Gerard Metral 

It's homemade, 9mm, lightweight, durable — and it will never be 
on any import ban lists! You'll never have to worry about which sub- 
machine guns turn up on the banned-import list again. Now you can 
build your own simply by following the complete step-by-step plans 
and machinist's drawings contained in this book. The gun you will turn 
out will be a 9mm, blowback, selective-fire design with a 32-round 
magazine. It's just as powerful as an Uzi or HK MP5, but it's lighter 
and handier, it has fewer parts, it can be clandestinely manufactured 
even in large numbers, and best of all, it has no paper trail! 

The author, a reserve captain in the Swiss army who has spent 
years researching and designing "resistance" weapons, borrows the 
best design features from the CZ 25, Uzi, Suomi M1931, and STEN, 
but he adds his own innovations to make this weapon more effective, 
reliable, and quick to assemble. The increasingly restrictive and over 
regulated society in which we live calls for extraordinary measures. 
This homemade submachine gun fits the bill. 

NOTE: The ownership of firearms is regulated by every govern- 
ment All applicable laws and restrictions also apply to homebuilt 
models. This book is presented for academic study only.

If the prospect of learning how to build an AR-15/M16 in the pri-

book you've been waiting for! As Home Workshop Guns for 
Defense and Resistance, Volume V points out, finances need not 
impede the dedicated hobbyist, despite the so-called "Crime Bill" of 
1994, which sent the price of lower receivers skyrocketing and effec- 
tively ended their manufacture. Realizing that the day may come 
when one will be compelled to know how to build such a firearm or 
remain defenseless, master gunsmith and author Bill Holmes has 
designed an alternative that allows the home craftsman to construct 
the entire gun from raw materials. Remember: Actual construction or 
possession of the weapon(s) described in Home Workshop Guns 
for Defense and Resistance, Volume V, may be illegal under fed- 
eral, state, or local laws, so this information is presented for academic 
study only!

MORE GUNS, LESS CRIME 

Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws 

by John R. Lott, Jr. 

Does allowing people to own and 
carry concealed weapons really deter 
violent crime? Or does it simply cause 
more citizens to harm each other? In this 
important study, legal scholar John Lott 
presents the most rigorously compre- 
hensive study ever done on crime in 
America. Lott meticulously analyzes the 
effects of gun control laws on crime 
rates. In what comes as a challenge to 
conventional wisdom, he reaches a star- 
tling conclusion: where there are more 
guns, there is less crime. 

You'll discover these eye-opening 
facts, among others, when you read 
More Guns, Less Crime: • A passive 

victim is much more likely to be seriously injured by a criminal than a 
victim who resists attacks with a gun. • Neither state waiting periods 
nor the federal Brady Law is associated with a reduction in crime 
rates. • The number of concealed handgun permits is not associated 
with either increased accidental deaths or suicides. • High-crime, 
urban areas and neighborhoods with large minority populations have 
the greatest reductions in violent crime when law-abiding citizens are 
allowed to carry concealed handguns. 

An important look at guns and crime in our society, More Guns, 
Less Crime is required reading for anyone who wants to take an 
informed, intelligent position on the contentious and critical American 
debate over gun control.

BOSTON'S GUN BIBLE 
by Boston T. Party 

Boston's books have 
become known for their aston- 
ishing practicality and street- 
savvyness, and Boston's Gun 
Bible is the most practical of 
them all. In today's perilous cli- 
mate, the American gun owner 
requires real-world information 
on law, politics, market forces, 
tactics, and technical matters. 
No other title explains ail these, 
much less with such clarity. The 
reader will learn what to choose 
amongst the bewildering array of 
guns and gear, how to buy and 
sell, how to get quality training in 
safety and tactics, how to avoid 
BATF stings, how to defend the 
2nd Amendment, what the gun 
laws are in each state, what "gun 
control" to expect and in what 

sequence, and how to prepare for the eventual day of attempted gun 
confiscation. Chapter 32 ("Letter to a Columbine Student") is one of 
the most concise and stirring rebuttals to "reasonable gun legislation" 
ever written. 

Why you should... go to a quality defensive shooting academy, 
now!; consider not getting a concealed gun permit; not trust recent 
"pro-gun" Supreme Court rulings. 

Learn what... guns and gear will likely be outlawed next, and in 
what order; inferior guns and gadgets not to risk your life on; guns to 
own — city slicker or country folk, rich or poor. 

Know exactly how to... spend within your budget, wisely and effi- 
ciently; buy guns and gear without creating a record trail back to you; 
hope and work for the best while preparing for the worst.

COMBAT KNIFE THROWING 

A New Approach to Knife Throwing 

and Knife Fighting 

by Ralph Thorn 

Conven- 
tional wisdom 
among knife- 
fighting experts 
has it that knife 
throwing is a 
pursuit best left 
to circus per- 
formers* hillbilly 
theme parks* 
and hobbyists 
and that it is 
useless for 
combat or other 
survival pur- 
poses. In this 
ground-break- 
ing new book, 
Ralph Thorn 
differentiates 
between "cir- 
cus" knife 
throwing and 
combat knife 
throwing, and 
reveals his 
style of knife 
throwing suiti,. 
able for actual 
combat and 
knife fights. 

The author, who has practiced his craft for decades, begins by 
showing you how to balance a knife for throwing — and how to make 
your own throwing knives out of readily available materials. He shows 
you how to build targets (and what makes the best targets), and how 
to practice the various combat throwing techniques, with an emphasis 
on both safety and practicality. Ralph Thorn demonstrates the over- 
hand, underhand, and sidearm throws, and discusses the situations 
where each style works best. 

"One way of expressing the essential difference between circus- 
style and spear-style throwing is to say that in the former you try to 
make every throw as similar as possible and in the latter you can and 
should treat every throw differently. Circus throwers try to throw the 
same knife, from the same distance, with the same release and the 
same stance so that they can get a perfect rotation and consistently 
stick the target. Since merely sticking the target is so easy when 
throwing spear style it quickly becomes almost automatic. In spear- 
style throwing you can effortlessly switch between differently shaped 
and sized knives (I have two dozen and no two are identical), change 
release points, velocities, stances, and arm angles in a split second, 
throw off the wrong foot with a bad grip, throw while moving in any 
direction, and so on. You can, in other words, make it up as you go 
along. It's a little like the difference between practicing shooting free 
throws and actually playing basketball. Circus-style throwing is a 
game of dexterity that requires a single, very specific skill; in this it is 
much like bowling or billiards. Spear-style throwing can be like this if 
you want to stand still and throw for accuracy alone, but it can also 
become a freestyle sport, more like martial arts or skateboarding than 
like circus throwing. And, of course, it can be used for self defense." 

The author also includes chapters on Psychological and Physical 
Conditioning and Hunting and Recreational Skills. A truly path-break- 
ing book, Combat Knife Throwing should be read by every sports- 
man, knife aficionado, and anyone interested in self defense.

DISGUISED WEAPONS 

The Law Enforcement Guide to Covert Guns, 

Knives, and Other Weapons 

by Craig S. Meissner 



Concealed weapons are 
nothing new. Many, such as 
war fans and blowgun 
flutes, have been around for 
centuries, and police 
recover new and ever more 
devious devices on the 
street almost daily. But after

CRAIG S. MEISSNER 

DISGUISED 
WEAPONS 

The law Enforcement Guide to 
Covert Guns, Knives, and Other Weapons 




regarding hidden weapons 
became a top priority for 
law enforcement and secu- 
rity personnel worldwide. 
The events of 9/11, and 
other security breaches that 
followed, awakened the 
public to the grave dangers 
covert weapons — and 
lackadaisical security 

measures — pose to civil- 
ians and police alike. 

This book, written by 
New York Police Officer 
Craig Meissner, drives the point home. From guns disguised as beep- 
ers and cell phones to razor-sharp plastic knives shaped like credit 
cards to stun guns taking the form of pens and flashlights, the 
weapons described in this book are based on everyday objects that 
would not ordinarily arouse suspicion. Outwardly innocuous and strik- 
ingly simple, ail of these items are extremely treacherous, and most 
are potentially lethal. In addition to insight into the kinds of weapons 
to be on the alert for, Meissner offers indispensable advice on search 
tactics and techniques that will ensure .their safe and efficient recov- 
ery. 

Whether you are a police officer, border patrol or airport security 
agent, corrections officer, private security guard, member of the 
armed forces, or defense-minded civilian, this book provides an eye- 
opening — and potentially life-saving — glimpse into the world of 
covert weapons and the ingenuity of the criminal mind.

THE POOR MAN'S JAMES BOND 

Volume 1 

by Kurt Saxon 

The thought of violence is 
unpleasant to decent people. 
Yet, if you want to survive the 
worst, you must at least imagine 
the worst. The worst would be 
starving marauders pillaging 
their way across the land with 
insane abandon. 

If you prepare to survive, 
you deserve to survive. As gen- 
tle as you may be, you cannot 
be in favor of the improvident 
looters surviving at the expense 
of you and your friends and 
family. Besides, their survival 
would only be temporary, any- 
way. They wouldn't utilize your 
methane converters, organic 
gardens, tools or books. After destroying you they would vandalize 
your operation, grab up whatever food was handy and move on. 

Your lack of resistance would contribute only to the loss of your 
knowledge to the next generation. But with the right amount of the 
right kind of resistance, you could pass on your ideas to future gener- 
ations. The Poor Man's James Bond could be responsible for the 
country being named after you later on — at least you will be alive. 

Besides, it is a fun book right now. It is the undisputed leader in 
the field of books on improvised weaponry. It is a digest of the best 
tricks of militants and guerrillas the world over. Economical, safe, 
crafty. You can rout enemies even without hurting them. And if you're 
short of cash, there is even a section on counterfeiting. Get The Poor 
Man's James Bond and you will be as secure as anyone can be in 
the event of civilization's collapse.

THE SLING 

For Sport & Survival 

by Cliff Savage 

The weapon David used to kill Goliath is still useful today, and 
could be particularly valuable in survival situations. The sling rnay be 
an ancient weapon, but there are some powerful reasons for including 
it in any modern arsenal. It is silent and has multiple uses. It is power- 
ful and has better range than a bow. It is accurate and easy to learn to 
use. It is easily improvised and highly portable. It can be readily con- 
cealed. Ammunition is available anywhere for free, and it is inexpen- 
sive, and takes up little room. Sounds like a pretty good weapon, 
doesn't it? 

The sling can be used for hunting, agriculture, sport and survival. 
It is the ultimate lightweight weapon for wilderness survival. And in 
urban settings, where more powerful weapons are banned, knowing 
how to use a sling is a valuable and important skill. 

The Sling is the complete manual on this little-known weapon. It 
tells how to make one, how to use one, and when and where to use 
one. The Sling is highly recommended for all survivalists and 
weapons enthusiasts.

SEVILLIAN STEEL 

The Traditional Knife-Fighting Arts of Spain 

by James Loriega 

Nowhere in Europe has the art of knife-fighting been so nurtured 
as in the countries of the Mediterranean, and the country with the 
richest knife culture of all is Spain. In Seville, as throughout many 
parts of Spain, one can find training halls where edged-weapons 
combat is practiced today as it was 300 years ago. Just such a place 
was discovered by American ninjutsu master James Loriega when he 
toured Spain several years ago to conduct training seminars and 
demonstrate his martial arts skills. 

At the Sevillian School of Edged Weapons, situated on a cobble- 
stone side street near Seville's famed Plaza de Espaha, he met Don 
Santiago Rivera, a master of arms who teaches the centuries-old art 
of traditional Spanish blade-handling. Loriega, already an expert in 
Japanese and Filipino knife-fighting disciplines, soon began learning 
the art of Sevillian Steel — the term used to identify the weapons and 
fighting systems that originated and evolved in Andalusian Spain. 

Through step-by-step photos, rare historical illustrations, and col- 
orful stories taken from seven summers at the Sevillian School, Lor- 
iega presents the strategies, tactics, techniques, and philosophies 
behind the three distinct styles of Sevillian Steel. Throughout the 
book, he offers the reader glimpses of exotic places not found in any 
guidebook — places where martial arts ranks have no meaning, and 
no one bows before closing with you. This is an invaluable resource 
for anyone interested in knives, knife-fighting, European martial arts, 
or Spanish culture.

THE LOGIC OF STEEL 

A Fighter's View of Blade and Shank Encounters 

by James LaFond 

The Logic of Steel is not about 
the art of knife fighting. Its sole 
purpose is to illustrate the cold, 
hard, logical nature and dynamics 
of real-world edged-weapon 
encounters as experienced by 
author James LaFond and more 
than 90 other people who have 
found themselves suddenly caught 
up in a knife fight. 

The Logic of Steel offers a 
comprehensive analysis of more 
than 250 acts of violence that 
involved the use of an edged 
weapon, as told from the perspec- 
tive of the attackers, eyewit- 
nesses, and victims. The action is 
broken down by weapon type 
(razors, folders, butchers, bal- 
isongs, switchblades, sickles, 

swords, and improvised slasher/stabbers) and use patterns. The cir- 
cumstances, motivation, and mechanics of real blade and shank 
fights are illuminated through the use of gripping (and often comical) 
first-person accounts, photographs, and hard statistics. Also dis- 
cussed are the psychology, injury patterns, and legal ramifications of 
knife fighting, as well as invaluable tips on how to prevent clinches 
and floor fights from escalating into knife fights, how to survive 
unarmed against an armed assailant, how to dress for success 
against a knife fighter, and how to live to fight another day by suc- 
cessfully running away from an armed attacker. 

If you want to be able to spot a knifer — and predict his behavior 
— before it's too late, The Logic of Steel is a must read.

PERSONAL DEFENSE WEAPONS 
by J. Randall 



"A good defensive weapon should 
protect you from criminals without making 
you a criminal for carrying it," says J. 
Randall, a private detective and weapons 
expert. Randall has tried just about every 
weapon imaginable, from bullwhips to bo 
staffs, yet he's a surprisingly low-tech 
guy. One of his favorite defensive 
weapons is the cigarette lighter: "Five 
inches of flame in the face is incredibly 
frightening." 

That's just a sample of the refreshing, 
practical advice found in this book. Ran- 
dall evaluates all kinds of weapons — 
guns, knives, sticks, gas canisters, mar- 
tial arts weapons, and many others by 
asking some very interesting questions: • Is it too deadly to use? • Is it 
illegal to carry it or brandish it? • Can it be concealed, yet reached 
when needed? • Is it comfortable to carry at all times? • How much 
skill and training does it take? • Will it gross you out to use it? • Is it 
reliable? • Will it break or wear out? 

Randall covers such topics as: What is a weapon?; The history, 
evolution and background of personal defense weapons; Characteris- 
tics of good weapons; and Choosing a weapon for personal defense. 
He gives profiles, descriptions, and applications of the following spe- 
cific weapons: • Blackjacks • Knives -Tear Gas • Bullwhips • Firearms 
• Steel-Capped Shoes • Martial Arts Weapons • Garottes • Walking 
Sticks, Nightsticks and Canes • And* more, including your mind and 
body as a weapon. 

Randall's common sense approach to personal defense is a 

pleasure to read. Whatever your situation, Personal Defense 

Weapons will help you find protection you can live with.

HOW TO BUILD FLASH/STUN GRENADES 
by George Dmitrieff 

Since the beginning of human his-

flashing methods to render their 
opponents helpless. Whether the 
"weapons" are highly polished 
shields and mirrors, poison gasses or 
modern lasers, one of the best ways 
to overcome an enemy is to incapaci- 
tate him. George Dmitrieff, noted 
author of firearms and ammunitions 
publications, takes you into the realm 
of exotic defensive munitions with 
this excellent treatise on the 
flash/stun grenade. This book covers 
all the basic fundamentals of the mili- 
tary grenades. There are step-by-

GUERRILLA WARE AND TERRORISM 



INTRODUCTION 

Guerrilla Warfare and Terrorism... Is this what the future holds for 
America? We hope not, but you never know... 

From how to fight off an invading army to how to overthrow a banana 
republic, and more — here is a carefully selected group of books on 
guerrilla warfare, and terrorism. 




NIGHT MOVEMENTS 
(Translated From the Japanese) 

Truly a collector's Item, this rare translation of the original (1913) 
Japanese military text is generally regarded as the finest study of 
night fighting ever written. The following topics are exhaustively cov- 
ered: • Achieving silence in night movements • How to dress and 
develop your night vision •Training in hearing at night • Training in 
techniques for night firing • Night demolition • Secret techniques for 
night patrols • Silent movements • Use of weapons at night • Night 
fighting and battles • And much, much more. 

The original Japanese manual was used to train snipers, scouts, 

and saboteurs in World War II. After the war, it became one of the 

classic manuals used by insurgents in many parts of the world. In the 

1960s and 1970s, this became the basic night training manual for the 

Rhodesian and Australian SAS. Night Movements is essential for 

the study of counter-insurgency and clandestine activities.

BAZOOKA 

How to Build Your Own 

by Anthony Lewis 

If you get a bang out of the 
flash and thud of an explosion and 
are intrigued by the problems and 
successes involved in the con- 
struction of soft munitions, propel- 
lants, and weapons, you might 
wish to build your own bazooka. A 
bazooka is not difficult to make — 
after all, it is only a barrel with a 
few essential items fastened into 
place — and you can find all the 
materials you need at your local 
hardware store. 

Here Anthony Lewis takes you 
through the process he perfected, 
from constructing the cartridge, 
barrel, grip, and sights to mixing 
the propellant and igniter to 
assembling and loading the car- 
tridge. Finally, he covers the fun part: test-firing and sighting. 

Simply follow this procedure step-by-step, and before you know it 

you'll be blasting away like Rambo on a good day. So, happy building 

and, as Lewis would say, "go forth, plink away, and be merry." But do 

be careful. This book is for entertainment purposes only.

COUP D'ETAT 

A Practical Handbook 

by Edward Luttwak 

HERE IT IS — HOW 
TO OVERTHROW A GOV- 
ERNMENT!!! 

This book has become 
a classic in twenty-five 
years. It is a step-by-step 
manual on how to over- 
throw a government. 

No mere wishbook, 
this; for over half the 
nations on earth coup d'e- 
tat is the normal means of 
transferring power. For the 
rest, only a minority (USA, 
Canada, etc.) have never 
experienced a successful 
coup and every nation has 
had to deal with an 
attempted coup at some 
time or another. 

Coup d'6tat is the mod- 
ern alternative to revolu- 
tion. Coup d'6tat requires 
no ideology, except the 

ideology of power. Coup d'etat takes no notice of who sits in what 
bureau office, as long as the bureaucrat is willing to work for 
whomever controls the state. Coup d'etat always appeals to the mili- 
tary, and once they are in on it, it usually succeeds. There are excep- 
tions, and Luttwak looks at all the things that can and do go wrong 
with coups. He carefully examines the secret police, the interior min- 
istries, the armed forces, and the Chief Executive; each is inspected 
for strengths and weaknesses. (Consider that the drive for technically 
minded people means that most nations must inevitably recruit their 
own enemies into sensitive positions. You can screen out communists 
from the FBI, but you can't stop FBI agents from turning against the 
President.) 

All through the work, the author uses a first-person narrative, 
assuming that you and he are going to kick over the old regime. It's an 
exhilarating read! From the first flush of conspiracy to the day you are 
inaugurated, you enjoy and learn from every page. 

Anyone who travels overseas should understand this book — it 
could save your life! (Unless you fancy being held prisoner in the US 
Embassy in some godforsaken savage country by a mob of "stu- 
dents" old enough to have tenure.) 

Remember: Coup d'etat is more common and more successful 
than free elections.

TERRORISM 

THE COMPLETE RtFERENGE GUIDE 



GLOBAL TERRORISM 

The Complete Reference Guide 

by Harry Henderson 

The proliferation and availability 
of sophisticated weapons have 
made the issue ofterrorism more 
urgent than ever. Terrorist groups 
no longer rely solely on firepower to 
make their message heard; as 
bioterrorism becomes a possibility, 
the range of victims affected can be 
far greater than previously imag- 
ined. Instead of attacking one spe- 
cific target, cyberterrorists are 
interested in destroying the elec- 
tronic infrastructure of their ene- 
mies, rendering them powerless by 
damaging computer and informa- 
tion systems. Global Terrorism is a 
balanced examination of the com- 
plex political and social issues sur- 
rounding this phenomenon. 

Coverage includes: • An extensive historical overview of terrorism 
and related issues • A survey of terrorism today, including the most 
recent attack on the World Trade Center • Terrorism-related laws, 
legal issues, and court cases • A chronological survey of major terror- 
ist attacks, trials, and other relevant events • Brief biographies of 
leaders of terrorist groups, and academic and counterterrorism 
experts • A glossary of terms and acronyms • A guide to further 
research on terrorism • An extensive annotated bibliography • A list of 
organizations and agencies providing helpful resources on terrorism • 
Graphs and charts • And appendixes and an index.

A PROFESSIONAL'S GUIDE TO PYROTECHNICS 

Understanding and Making Exploding Fireworks 

byJohnDonner 

Despite attempts by citizen groups and various government 
bureaucrats to ban their manufacture and use, firecrackers and other 
exploding fireworks remain perennially popular, drawing crowds of 
Americans together, highlighting celebrations and festivities, and pro- 
viding endless entertainment for pyrotechnic hobbyists. The simple 
fact is that fireworks are an American institution: they appeal to our 
sense of patriotism and conjure up that youthful wonder and excite- 
ment over things that go bang, and a substantial portion of the public 
continues to enjoy them. This book ensures that the knowledge to 
make these devices will always be available, whether or not fireworks 
themselves remain so over the years. 

If you have an interest in homemade fireworks, A Professional's 
Guide to Pyrotechnics provides a well-rounded selection of formu- 
las for making the most popular exploding fireworks used in the 
United States and abroad during the past century, including the ven- 
erable M80s, cherry bombs, chasers, globe torpedoes, Knallkorpers, 
aerial bombs, ash cans, cracker balls, Flashcrackas, thunder flashes, 
triangle crackers, and more! 

In addition to scores of recipes, author John Donner, an experi- 
enced pyrotechnist, provides all the essential background informa- 
tion, including an explanation of basic fireworks theory, a brief history 
of firecrackers, lists of all the necessary tools, supplies, and chemi- 
cals for home manufacture, and important safety precautions for stor- 
age and use. Of course, the procedures described in A 
Professional's Guide to Pyrotechnics and the resulting end prod- 
ucts are extremely dangerous, and failure to strictly adhere to indus- 
try standards for experimentation and production of such products 
may result in harm to life and limb. Therefore, this book is intended for 
academic study only.

EXTREME ISLAM 

Anti-American Propaganda 

of Muslim Fundamentalism 

by Adam Parfrey 

Extreme Islam is the first and only book to compile the primary 
voices, both graphic and textual, of Muslim fundamentalism — fat- 
was, interviews, essays, political cartoons, paintings, poems and sto- 
ries underscoring its beliefs, visions, history and plans. 

Turning a blind eye to the substance of the messianic context of 
Islam, one that fervently prays for the destruction of all ideological 
enemies, is foolhardy, says editor Adam Parfrey. 

We were asleep at the wheel; we didn't have a clue. Our primary 
symbols of wealth and might were destroyed so spectacularly, so 
momentously, that Muslim fundamentalists believed it could only be 
Allah's wrath. Celebrations quickly became fervent prayer for Allah to 
complete the job and annihilate 'The Great Satan." 

Should we ignore the basics of this messianic religion? Ignore its 
code, its beliefs, its history, its visions, its plans? Extreme Islam 
explores the fundamentalist current, whose strict interpretations of 
the Holy Qur'an has led it to declare war against secular nations, and 
even members of its own religion whose lenient ideas are considered 
apostate, a sin punishable by death. 

Explosive as the views it presents, Extreme Islam cuts to the 
chase, and allows the major voices of Islamic militancy to speak for 
themselves. A wide spectrum of interviews, essays, political cartoons, 
posters, poems and stories are collected together to confront the 
reader with important and rarely seen perspectives of a movement 
that opposes almost everything considered holy by America and 
Western civilization. 

Ground zero of the showdown is Jerusalem, where fundamental- 
ists from Christianity and Judaism are joining the fray, plotting to 
destroy al-Aqsa, one of Islam's holiest shrines, to foment world war 
and Apocalypse. 

No book could be more timely than Extreme Islam.

TERRORISM 
CONSTITUTION 



TERRORISM AND THE CONSTITUTION 

Sacrificing Civil Liberties in the Name 

of National Security 

by David Cole and James X. Dempsey 



In a vivid and important critique of 
our government's response to terror- 
ist threats, two leading constitutional 
scholars warn that many anti-terror- 
ism efforts needlessly sacrifice civil 
liberties without effectively protecting 
national security. 

Cole and Dempsey contend that 
in its response to the attacks of Sep- 
tember 11, the Bush administration 
has already repeated many of the 
worst mistakes of the past, and is 
unlikely to make Americans more 
secure. By comparing recent anti-ter- 
rorism legislation to previous law 
enforcement abuses — - from anti- 
Communist measures of the 1950s 
to FBI spying on civil rights activists 
in the 1960s, and the investigation and harassment of critics of U.S. 
foreign policy in the 1980s and 1990s — the authors make a com- 
pelling case that today's anti-terrorism activity expands the powers of 
the FBI and other agencies in ways that are neither necessary nor 
desirable in a free society. 

The book concludes with an extended, detailed blueprint that 
shows how we can fight terrorism without relying on guilt by associa- 
tion, secret proceedings, and unchecked intrusions on privacy, and 
how we will be safe in the long run if we adhere to these basic consti- 
tutional principles.

9-11 

by Noam Chomsky 

In 9-1 1, Noam Chomsky dissects the root causes of the Septem- 
ber 11th catastrophe, the historical precedents for it, and the possible 
outcomes as the world moves forward into the post-September 11 
reality. As Chomsky writes, "In the past half century particularly, the 
U.S. resorted to force throughout much of the world... For the first 
time, the guns have been directed the other way. That is a dramatic 
change." Chomsky believes that the attacks have been harmful in 
ways that extend far beyond the initial death toll and ongoing national 
emergency. For example, he believes they represent "a devastating 
blow" to Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. Most importantly and 
provocatively, Chomsky argues that in the world after 9-11, it is no 
longer possible to hold our enemies to one standard, ourselves to 
another. 

As for why the attack happened, Chomsky writes that "This ques- 
tion is rarely raised in a serious way." And he adds, 'To refuse to face 
this question is to choose to increase significantly the probability of 
further crimes of this kind." In 9-11, Noam Chomsky comments on the 
September 11th attacks, the new war on terrorism, Osama bin Laden, 
U.S. involvement with Afghanistan, media control, and the long-term 
implications of America's military attacks abroad. Informed by his 
deep understanding of the gravity of these issues and the global 
stakes, 9-11 demonstrates Chomsky's impeccable knowledge of U.S. 
foreign policy in the Middle East and South Asia, and sheds light on 
the rapidly shifting balance of world power. Speaking out against 
escalating violence, Chomsky critically examines the United States' 
own foreign policy record and considers what international institutions 
might be employed against underground networks and national 
states accused of terrorism. 

9-11 will set the tone of debate in the months to come, and will 
also be a measure of how well the media is able to serve its role of 
informing the citizenry, so crucial to our democracy in times of war.

PERPETUAL WAR FOR PERPETUAL PEACE 

How We Got To Be So Hated 

by Gore Vidal 

Gore Vidal is one of the world's most astute critics of American for- 
eign policy. This new book is his most incisive, provocative work ever. 
It includes Vidal's essay on Timothy McVeigh that both Vanity Fair and 
The Nation were unwilling to publish because of its controversial 
nature. Through Vidal's examination of his correspondence with 
McVeigh, shortly prior to the Oklahoma City bomber's execution, the 
author finds an eerie similarity between the motives of far-right Amer- 
ican terrorists and Al Qaeda, and more troubling, how extremist 
movements around the world have sprung up as a populist reaction to 
the destructive policies of the United States government. 

Vidal reveals that since 1945, the US has been the aggressor in 
over two hundred attacks on countries around the world, using mili- 
tary force to attack peacetime governments. The book's centerpiece 
offers a shocking look at how the United States may ultimately be 
responsible for the September 11, 2001 tragedy. VidaJ puts today's 
fundamentalist Islamic terrorism in historical context as well as offer- 
ing a terrifying, Orwellian look at how the Bush regime has used the 
tragedy as an excuse to eviscerate the Constitution, and destroy what 
remains of Americans' civil rights. 

'The awesome physical damage Osama and company did to us is 
nothing compared to the knock-out blow to our vanishing liberties: 
The Anti-Terrorism Act of 1996 combined with the recent request to 
Congress for additional special powers to wiretap without judicial 
order, to deport lawful permanent residents, visitors, and undocu- 
mented immigrants without due process." Could it be that the greatest 
victim of the September 1 1th terror attacks will be American liberty? 
"Once alienated," Vidal writes, "an 'unalienable right' is apt to be for- 
ever lost."

TERRORISM AND WAR 
by Howard Zinn 

Terrorism and War is based on a series of interviews with 
renowned historian Howard Zinn, conducted between September 
2001 and January 2002. Here are some excerpts: 

'The continued expenditure of more than $300 billion for the mili- 
tary every year has absolutely no effect on the danger of terrorism. If 
we want real security, we will have to change our posture in the world 
— to stop being an intervening military power and to stop dominating 
the economies of other countries." 

"I think there is a simple test of what concerns bin Laden, whether 
it is our democracy and internal freedom or whether it's our foreign 
policy. And that simple test is: What side was Osama bin Laden on 
before 1990? That is, before the United States stationed troops in 
Saudi Arabia, made war against Iraq, and began its sanctions against 
Iraq. We were just as democratic and libertarian internally before 
1990 as we are today. But Osama bin Laden was not offended by 
that. He was on our side — and we were on his side — in the fight to 
take control of the government in Afghanistan. The turning point for 
Osama bin Laden is very clear. It has nothing to do with democracy 
and liberty. It has to do with U.S. foreign policy. And that turning point 
came in 1 990 and 1 991 ." 

"War has always diminished our freedom. When our freedom has 
expanded, it has not come as a result of war or of anything the gov- 
ernment has done but as a result of what citizens have done. ...the 
government was always in support of the employers and the corpora- 
tions. ...The freedom of working people ...has always depended on 
the struggles of people themselves against the government. So, if we 
look at it historically, we certainly cannot depend on government to 
maintain our liberties. We have to depend on our own organized 
efforts." 

Terrorism and War is the latest from the brilliant pen of Howard 
Zinn. If you want to understand what is going on all around us today, 
this book is must reading.

WAGING WAR FROM CANADA 

Why Canada is the perfect base 

for organizing, supporting, 

and conducting international insurgency 

by Mike Pearson 

Canada is a peaceful, polite country that experiences a mere frac- 
tion of the violent crime visited on its American neighbor. Further- 
more, Canadian nationals, military personnel, and institutions are 
seldom the target of terrorist attacks. Yet, terrorist groups are present 
in Canada whose origins lie in virtually every significant regional, eth- 
nic, and nationalist conflict there is in the world. 

In Waging War From Canada, Mike Pearson reveals: 

Why Canada is an ideal base for terrorist activities 

The four basic methods terrorists might use to enter 

Canada 

Why claiming "Refugee" status is the best way for a ter- 
rorist to get into Canada 

10,000 refugee claimants disappear into Canadian 

society every year — never to be located by law 

enforcement 

How terrorists groups exploit Political Correctness and 

charges of "racism" to evade surveillance 

Five examples of the blundering incompetence of the 

Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) — and 

how this helps terrorists 

The two Canadian Army organizations that are effective 

terrorist deterrents 

Spying on the United States from Canada — who does 

it and how they get away with it 

Why Canada is perfectly suited to use as a base for ter- 
rorist fundraising 

How terrorist organizations use counterfeiting and credit 

card fraud to raise funds 

The top ten money-laundering methods terrorists use in 

Canada 

"Spoofing Citizenship": The best way for a terrorist to 

acquire foolproof Canadian I.D. 

What suspects are able to do if arrested — and one 

thing that works against them 

Examples from real life terrorist organizations now 

operating in Canada 

And much, much more. 
This shocking book provides background information on why 
Canada is an excellent place from which to organize and conduct 
fundraising, recruiting, propaganda, information-warfare, and military 
campaigns; explains how insurgents use the particularities and weak- 
nesses of Canada to further their causes, using examples from suc- 
cessful organizations currently active in Canada; and points readers 
toward further resources and reliable sources of information. Waging 
War From Canada is a book whose time has come!

WIDE OPEN TO TERRORISM 
by Tony Lesce 

In case you haven't noticed, 
American society (and most of the 
Western World) is Wide Open to 
Terrorism! The World Trade Center 
and Oklahoma City bombings, the 
derailment of an Amtrak Sunset 
Unlimited train, and numerous other 
terrorist attacks in the recent past 
are irrefutable evidence of this. And 
in Wide Open to Terrorism, author 
Tony Lesce aptly details the many 
vulnerabilities which are innate in 
our advanced technological civiliza- 
tion. 

Topics which are covered 
include: • The Nature of Terrorism • 
The History of Terrorism • Our 
Appalling Vulnerabilities • Bombing 
Scenarios • The Nuclear Threat • 
Case Study: The Anti-Abortion 
Movement • Case Study: The White House • Case Study: The 
Unabomber • Chemical and Biological Threats • Disruption Tech- 
niques • Computer Sabotage • Kidnapping • Assassination • Law 
Enforcement Reactions • The Role of Private Security • Self-Protec- 
tion • The Future of Terrorism • And much more, including a Bomb 
Threat Checklist, emergency telephone numbers, a list of selected 
reading and viewing suggestions, and an index, as well as illustrative 
photographs. 

So don't be caught unprepared. Improve your chances to survive 
today's reign of violence by reading Wide Open to Terrorism.

BIOWARFARE IN AMERICA 
by Jim Keith 

The era of chemical and bio- 
logical megadeath is upon us, 
and the potential of deadly 
biowarfare attacks from govern- 
ments, militant independent 
groups, and even individuals is 
far greater than it has been at 
any time in the past. At this time, 
more than twenty-five countries 
are developing, or have stock- 
piles of, chemical and biological 
weapons, in many cases in suffi- 
cient quantities to wipe out the 
entire population of the world! 

The danger of chemical and 
biological aggression has been 
little acknowledged, and at least 
in America, little prepared for by 
federal and local governments. 
Most terrorist threats and 
attacks are not reported. Infor- 
mation about the proliferation of man-made diseases is carefully sup- 
pressed by governments and the media. Those government officials 
who should be warning the American people about the dangers of 
chemical and biological terrorism, are instead doing their utmost to 
keep the facts from us: facts that are vital for our survival. The infor- 
mation contained in the pages of this book will not be measured or 
calculated to reassure people that everything is fine, when reassur- 
ance is the opposite of what is needed. You may even have night- 
mares when you read the truth about the biowarfare threat to 
America!

BLACK BOOK OF ARSON 
by Lyle Whitney 

It has been a long 
time since American mili- 
tias have had to fight for 
freedom. Hopefully, there 
will never again be a 
need. But just in case, a 
book such as this one 
could be an essential 
tool. Fire has been a 
powerful weapon ever 
since humans learned to 
produce and control it. 

The Black Book of 
Arson explains in detail: 
• How to use fire to its 
fullest effect • The best 
ways to make Molotov 
cocktails • Where to set 
fires for maximum effect • 
How to make waterproof 
igniters from matchbooks 
and balloons to be used in timer and booby-trap systems • How to 
attack with smoke, poison gas, heat and flame • How to defend your- 
self and others from fire. 

From Chapter One: "Fire has often been compared to a living 
creature: it eats, it breathes oxygen, it reproduces itself, behaves in 
ways according to certain rules that could be considered a thought 
process, it fights for life, and if deprived of its essential needs, it dies. 
Living or not, it is a ferocious beast of tremendous power. 

"Fire is often controlled and made to serve man, so either it or the 
ability to give birth to it are almost always near at hand. Those who 
know the beast and how it works carry with them a powerful device 
that can be sent to destroy the enemy's stores and destroy his 
devices, and also by killing him. 

"Fire has been used as a weapon of war from the stone age to 

present, and it will continue to be used as such long into the future."

CIVIL WAR TWO 

The Coming Breakup of America 

by Thomas W. Chittum 

The Second Civil 
War isn't just a night- 
mare anymore! 

Social, political, 
and economic forces 
are pulling America 
apart and driving her 
toward a bloody war 
that may fracture the 
nation into several 
different countries, 
dividing along ethnic 
lines! Riots... gangs... 
militias... exploding 
crime rates... mass 
immigration... rising 
unemployment... 
declining wages: 
these are all factors 
that will fuel the fires 
of internecine war! 

Civil War Two: 
The Coming 

Breakup of America 
is the book that states 
what a lot of Ameri- 
cans have been 

thinking, wondering, and talking about! America is no longer a nation 
at peace with itself. People realize that something has gone wrong in 
a fundamental way, but most of us aren't sure exactly what has gone 
wrong or precisely where it is taking us. 

Now, author and military analyst Thomas W. Chittum has provided 
a gutsy, no-nonsense, factual look at what more and more people 
have been thinking. He examines political, economic, and demo- 
graphic trends, and concludes that America is headed towards either 
becoming an imperialistic police state in which there is little or no free- 
dom, or — more likely, in his astute opinion — collapsing into a sec- 
ond civil war: Civil War Two. This impending civil war will break 
America apart geographically, primarily along racial lines, within the 
next 20 years! 

Chittum doesn't leave readers swimming in vague generaliza- 
tions! He pinpoints the factors that are driving the coming breakup. 
Chittum provides readers with detailed maps which depict how the 
country will likely be split, and who will be controlling which parts. 
Chittum examines the timetable for Civil War Two, explaining when it 
is likely to happen, and where it will happen when it does. And he 
gives his readers solid advice on what to do to prepare for such a war, 
and how to avoid a personal tragedy in the coming troubles. 

Chapters include: 

• Urban Street Gangs • The Militias • Ethnic 
Enclaves: Fortresses or Death Traps? • Mao's 
Rules for Revolution •Apocalypse in the North • 
Revolution in the Black South • The Mexican 
Reconquista of our Southwest • Our Police and 
Military Divide and Clash • Our Military Bases 
Fall to Siege • The Bloody Lessons of Tribal 
Europe • Waco, Ruby Ridge and Oklahoma City 

• The Establishment and Imperial Conversion • 
The Vicious Nature of Civil War Two • America, 
Empire or Nation? • Prepare Yourself. 

Take an in-depth look at these dangerous trends, and learn why 
America is headed for trouble, how this deadly struggle — already in 
its infancy — is shaping up, and what you can do to protect yourself 
and your family. Read this book now!

TO BREAK A TYRANT'S CHAINS 

Neo-Guerrilla Techniques for Combat 

by Duncan Long 

This book Is somewhat of an 
insurance policy: it has been 
created to help put tyrants — 
and would-be tyrants — on 
notice that a rag-tag band of 
neo-guerrilla fighters can bring 
the strongest of armies or police 
states to their knees. 

With this in mind, Duncan 
Long reveals the secrets of how 
to secure and create weapons 
and the tactics to use them 
when fighting almost anything 
imaginable — from attack heli- 
copters to tanks. 

You will learn how to thwart 
enemies equipped with night 
vision equipment and how to 
avoid being injured by deadly 
chemical agents — even if you 
don't have a gas mask or other 
protective equipment. 

Long also shows how to deal with ruthless governments that retal- 
iate against innocent citizens for actions that guerrillas take and how 
to keep from getting caught when making a significant "blow against 
the empire" — even if your rebel band consists of only a handful of 
determined people. Included in the book is a tough assessment of the 
effectiveness of various types of weapons, how to create fortified hid- 
ing places, how to wage a neo-guerrilla campaign both in urban as 
well as rural areas, and much more. Whether you are interested in the 
strategies and tactics. of modern guerrilla movements or concerned 
about a Big Brother takeover, this book belongs on your shelf.

DON'T BE MISLED BY SO-CALLED 
"BLACK BOOKS" 

Because of a few unscrupulous publishers and dealers, there 
exists some confusion concerning authentic Black Books. 

Some of the preliminary material for the Black Books program 
was published in 1969 by the military. This material was soon to be 
reproduced commercially and was known as TM31-210, Impro- 
vised Munitions Handbook. It sold for $3.00 to $10.00 a copy. 

In 1976, Desert Publications obtained (with great difficulty and 
expense) a set (two volumes) of the original loose leaf Black Books 
and made reproductions available to book buyers. These were enti- 
tled Improvised Munitions Black Book, Volume 1 and 2. 

By 1978, one parasite publisher chose to split TM31-210 into 
two volumes and printed each as a cheap, saddle-stitched booklet. 
To add to the confusion, these had black covers, and many unsus- 
pecting buyers thought they were getting the geniune Black Books. 

A year or so later, yet another parasite entered the picture. 
Obtaining Desert Publications' Black Books, he proceeded to repro- 
duce them into a cut-rate, one volume version. (Typically, stolen 
goods sell for less!) 

Our main complaint with such rip-offs is the confusion caused to 
the book buyers. 

Only Desert Publications has researched the Black Book pro- 
gram and maintains contact with ordnance experts involved. This 
has resulted in Volume 3, which contains all new, never before pub- 
lished material. Volume 3 is available in this catalog and will be 
available only from Loompanics Unlimited and other authorized 
Desert Publications dealers. ■ 

So — Don't be misled by rip-offs!

early 1970s. However, the program was phased out before these arti- 
cles could be prepared in finished form, printed and issued to the 
clandestine agents. 

Although Volumes 1 & 2 were comparatively well known prior to 
their first commercial printing, and were eagerly sought after, the exis- 
tence of the material in Volume 3 was known only to a handful of peo- 
ple in th.e intelligence community. Now, this material has been 
rescued from the dusty files of oblivion, professionally completed, and 
printed in an 8V2 x 11 format.

Food Drop Fiasco 

by Russ Kick 



©2003 by Russ Kick 



Artwork © 2002 by R.L. Crabb 




B&ttWftW 



Shortly after the U.S. attacked Afghanistan for 
supposedly sheltering Osama bin Laden and al 
Qaeda, our TV screens were filled with images of 
planes dropping food rations into the bombarded 
country. The little yellow packets were shoved out 
of cargo holds by the thousands. You could almost 
hear the government patting itself on the back as it 
said, "See, we're actually helping the starving peo- 
ple of Afghanistan." 

Trouble is, those food drops were a complete 
disaster. News reports mentioned some of the 
problems with the humanitarian effort, but there's 
a lot they either didn't tell us or got wrong. A non- 
profit aid organization called Partners Interna- 
tional Foundation decided to see what was going 
on. These guys aren't granola-crunching flower- 
children — they used to be in Special Forces units 
of the U.S. military. And they didn't content them- 
selves to sit in an office interviewing people by 
phone. They went into Afghanistan during the 
heaviest part of the war to find out what was hap- 
pening for themselves. 

Here's what they discovered: 



You know those little packets in vitamin bottles 
and clothes that are supposed to keep them 
fresh? Well, many of the little meal packs 
dropped on Afghanistan contained one of those 
packets (called a desiccant) to keep the food 
fresh. Unfortunately, the Afghans aren't familiar 
with desiccants so they tore them open and ate 
the powder. Some thought it was medicine, so 
they noshed it straight. Others figured it was a 
funky American spice, so they sprinkled it on 
their beans, rice, or pasta. Lots of Afghans got 
sick, though we don't know if any deaths 
occurred. In fact, it's hard to say whether people 
got sick from chowing down on desiccant or 
because the food in the packets was usually 
spoiled. 

You see, these plastic- wrapped meals weren't 
made to be dropped from 25,000 to 40,000 feet. 
As they freefall, the air pressure causes them to 
expand like balloons, and the cold at those alti- 
tudes makes the outer plastic brittle. If they 
haven't already split during their plummet, they

probably will when they hit the ground. Some 
burst wide open, while others got small tears, 
letting in water, dirt, and debris. Even in meals 
where the outer wrapping didn't split, the wrap- 
ping of individual pieces of food inside the meal 
packet was often torn. In all, the team found that 
over 90% of the meal packets had been damaged 
and were contaminated by fungus or bacteria. 
"They emitted a gaseous odor and foul smell," 
according to the report. But because the Afghans 
were so hungry, or because they thought that's 
how American kibble is supposed to smell, they 
wolfed down the food anyway. When large 
numbers of people got sick, the Taliban said that 
the U.S. was poisoning them. The government 
countered that the Taliban must've been tainting 
the food packs to frame the U.S. Neither side 
was apparently right. 

The food in the packets is 
usually spoiled. These plastic- 
wrapped meals weren't made to 
be dropped from 25,000 to 
40,000 feet. 

• Even if the food hadn't gone rotten, it wasn't 
appropriate for the Afghan culture. The locals 
eat rice, bread, and a little meat. Who knows 
what they made of the pasta, peanut butter, and 
pastries in the packets? It was kind of like serv- 
ing goat meat, fried crickets, and unidentifiable 
glop to Americans. While any food is welcome 
in an emergency, that strange foreign grub was- 
n't suitable for the goal of feeding people long- 
term. 

Even if the food hadn't gone 
rotten, it wasn't appropriate for 
the Afghan culture. The locals 
eat rice, bread, and a little meat 
Who knows what they made of 
the pasta, peanut butter, and 
pastries in the packets? 

• Another problem is that the food was distributed 
haphazardly. Sometimes the packets wouldn't 
be noticed for days or weeks, giving them plenty 
of time to go rotten. When dropped in remote 
locations, they were often hoarded or sold by the 
few people who happened to find them. 



• Remember that urban legend about dropping a 
penny from the Empire State Building and 
killing someone on the sidewalk below? Same 
principal for the food drops. Each plane would 
dump 35,000 of these little projectiles, which 
reached speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. The 
team didn't report on anyone hurt by plummet- 
ing packets, but they did see several huts with 
holes in their roofs caused by falling food. 

• But even if an Afghan didn't get conked on the 
head, they still had to be careful of packets on 
the ground. Why? Thanks to its war with the 
Soviet Union, Afghanistan is littered with unex- 
ploded mines and bombs. Go after a food packet 
in a field, and it may be the last thing you ever 
do. To make matters worse, some geniuses 
chose yellow plastic to wrap some of the meals. 
It just so happens that the bomblets from the 
U.S.'s cluster bombs are the same shade of yel- 
low. Meal packets and unexploded bomblets 
look unbelievably similar. Thus, Afghanis were 
introduced to a new form of Russian roulette. 

A bag of rice that can feed a 
family for a month costs $50, 
including delivery by land into 
Afghanistan. Using food drops, 
it cost over $145 to feed a family 
for a month. 

• As lame as the attempts were, they must have 
had something going for them, right? At the 
very least, they must've been a cheap way to 
feed people. Wrong again. A bag of rice that can 
feed a family for a month costs $50, including 
delivery by land into Afghanistan. Using food 
drops, it cost over $145 to feed a family for a 
month. 

That is, assuming the food packets didn't give 
them a concussion, ptomaine, or send them into a 
minefield. •

INTRODUCTION 



This is our blood-and-guts Section. These books are on 
little-discussed areas of the political arts. They are the 
most gruesome and terrifying of any in our entire catalog. 
We carry them because information on these subjects is 
hard to find, and all "governments" (whether "public" 
like the U.S. Federal Government, or "private" like the 
Mafia) resort to murder and torture as extensions of their 
foreign and domestic policies. The stuff in this section is 
what government is really all about. (We thought you 
ought to know...) 



DIM-MAK 

Death Point Striking 

by Erie Montaigue 

Those who doubt that 
t'ai chl ch'uan is the dead- 
liest system of self-defense 
ever invented don't know 
about dim-mak. What many 
serious martial artists now 
deride for its delicate, 
dancelike movements or 
dismiss as nothing but a 
path to good health is 
merely a smokescreen cre- 
ated by the ancient Chinese 
masters to conceal an art 
comprised of deadly strikes 
to vital acupuncture points. 
That art was known as dim- 
mak, or death-point striking 
— the original name for t'ai 
chi and the key to how the 
art earned its title of 
"supreme ultimate boxing." 

Today only a handful of 
instructors know the points 
and their hidden applica- 
tions. Erie Montaigue, who can trace his lineage back to Yang 
Luch'an, founder of the real Yang style, is one of them. 

In this book, Montaigue, an internationally acclaimed leader in the 
instruction of t'ai chi ch'uan, tells the full story of dim-mak for the first 
time. Against the advice of some of his seniors, he reveals the most 
dangerous points and describes both their martial and healing appli- 
cations, then takes it a step further by presenting set-up points, multi- 
ple point strikes, and neurological shutdown points. He does so 
because he believes now is the time to educate people thoroughly on 
the dangers of this powerful martial art. He has seen instructors use 
bits and pieces of the art in demonstration and recognizes that too lit- 
tle knowledge can sometimes be a dangerous thing indeed. 

Dim-mak is a deadly serious system of self-defense to be used 
only in life-or-death situations. It must not be treated lightly. This book 
is for information purposes only.

ASSORTED NASTIES 
by David Harber 

Sure, Americans still harbor a fear of nuclear war. But a much 
more immediate threat these days is the very real possibility of chem- 
ical and biological warfare. The CIA commissioned a book on how to 
make these toxic cocktails in the 1 950s, referred to as "the Devil's 
Diary." 

No known copies of that book have survived. This effort, however, 
is the closest recreation of the recipes for those lethal brews. You'll 
learn about blow guns, poison bullets and the nerve gas sarin, to 
name just a few. Some ingredients are readily available and can be 
mixed in the kitchen. Others are more complicated, requiring a com- 
plete laboratory set up. All are very dangerous, and must be treated 
with the utmost caution and respect. For informational purposes only.

DEATH TOUCH 

The Science Behind the Legend of Dim-Mak 

by Michael Kelly D.O. 

The martial arts world is rife with 
tales of ancient masters who could 
cause instant or delayed death or illness 
by attacking secret points on the human 
body. Such tales are actually based on 
an ancient martial art called dim-mak 
(also known as kyusho jitsu), which is lit- 
erally translated as "death touch." 
Although many martial artists have wit- 
nessed the devastating effects of this 
art, some remain skeptical because dim- 
mak is usually explained using esoteric 
concepts derived from acupuncture. To 
the Western mind, the concept of attack- 
ing points on the body to disrupt the 
internal energy of an opponent seems 
like hocus-pocus. Thus, many Western- 
ers dismiss dim-mak as nothing more than fictional nonsense. 

However, if one can accept the idea that a dim-mak point is an 
avenue for attacking the nervous system, it becomes easier to under- 
stand just how dangerous this legendary art really is. In this book, Dr. 
Michael Kelly, an osteopathic physician and experienced dim-mak 
practitioner, explains dim-mak's effects based on modern science. In 
layman's terms, Dr. Kelly reveals the physiological basis for what is 
clearly a very real and dangerous method of fighting and, in the 
process of unraveling the mystery of dim-mak, makes the true genius 
of its founders brutally, and painfully, apparent.

LAST SUPPERS 

Famous Final Meals 

from Death Row 

by Ty Treadwell & Michelle Vernon 

How's this for a last meal: 

24 tacos, 
2 cheeseburgers, 
2 whole onions, 
5 jaiapeno peppers, 
6 enchiladas, 
6 tostadas, 
one quart of milk and 
one chocolate milkshake? 
That's what David Castillo, convicted murderer packed in the night 
before Texas shot him up with a lethal injection. Or how about this: A 
dozen steamed mussels, a Burger King double cheeseburger with 
mustard, mayonnaise, lettuce and tomato, a can of Franco-American 
spaghetti with meatballs, a mango, half of a pumpkin pie with whipped 
cream, and a strawberry milkshake — all that went down the hatch-of 
killer Thomas Grasso on the eve of Oklahoma's giving him the nee- 
dle. 

The United States remains one of the few "civilized" nations to uti- 
lize capital punishment as a crime-fighting tool. Execution rituals have 
always varied slightly from state to state, not only in the method of 
death but also in the care and treatment of the accused during his 
final hours. One ritual that remains constant throughout all 38 states 
which have the death penalty is the act of feeding the condemned 
man a special last meal before the execution. The quantity and qual- 
ity of the food available to the inmate does vary, but each man or 
woman is always allowed to partake of one final feast before they 
shake hands with the Grim Reaper. 

The ritual seems to be important not only to the inmate and to 
prison officials, but to the general public as well. Almost every news- 
paper article documenting an execution lists the condemned man's 
last meal alongside his last words and the other details of the execu- 
tion, making one wonder why this tidbit of information is so greedily 
sought after. Do last meal menus somehow shed light on the inner 
psyche of the condemned man himself? Like a mystic reading tea 
leaves, do we hope to discover the reasoning behind a mad killer's 
crimes by examining the gravy smears on his plate? Could a proven 
connection between cheesecake lovers and axe-murderers aid law 
enforcement officials in solving crimes? Regardless of the reasons, it 
can truly be said that criminals aren't the only ones with an appetite 
for "last suppers." So djg in and enjoy!

INTERRORGATION 

The CIA's Secret Manual on Coercive Questioning 

With an Introduction by Jon Eiliston 

"Resistant sources" can be 
broken down with carefully cho- 
sen, concentrated psychologi- 
cal forces, according to 
InTERRORgation, the CIAs 
1963 interrogation guidebook. 
The KUBARK Counterintelli- 
gence Interrogation manual, 
declassified in January 1997 
after the Baltimore Sun threat- 
ened to launch a Freedom of 
Information Act lawsuit, offers 
an inside view of the agency's 
hostile interrogation strategies 
— methods for inducing physi- 
cal and mental agony. Through- 
out the manual, KUBARK — 
the code word for the CIA — 
cites its covertly funded mind 
control research to explain the optimal means of making people talk. 

From page 8: "Interrogations conducted under compulsion or 
duress are especially likely to involve illegality and to entail damaging 
consequences for [CIA]. Therefore prior Headquarters 
approval... must be obtained for the interrogation of any source 
against his will and under any of the following circumstances: • If bod- 
ily harm is to be inflicted • If medical, chemical or electrical methods 
or materials are to be used to induce acquiescence • [deleted]" 
"The manual's description of coercive techniques, including the 
milder forms of torture... makes it a Cold War artifact of the first order," 
wrote Tim Weiner of the New York Times. For students and critics of 
the CIA, this document is a must-read. 

InTERRORgation puts government torture on the record.

ASSASSIN! 

The Deadly Art of the Cult of The Assassins 

by Dr. Haha Lung 

From the shadows of the ancient 
Middle East comes the terror known as 
the hashishin, the professional assas- 
sins of old who were responsible for 
more changes in the course of history 
from the pre-Middle Ages to the present 
throughout the Middle East and Europe 
than any other faction. 

Dr. Haha Lung brings you the insidi- 
ously effective techniques of the Cult of 
the Assassins. From delivering graphic 
threats, to boarding an enemy's boat 
without being detected, to inserting an 
agent into the household staff of the 
soon-to-be-victim and ambushing him 
on the street after spending months 
befriending him — the hashishin cultivated every method at their dis- 
posal to dispatch their enemies, and this astonishing book gives the 
reader every shred of information about their well-honed methods. 

For the first time, the history and techniques of this feared cult are 

revealed in their entirety. Learn the shocking array of hand-to-hand 

fighting techniques that were developed thousands of years ago by 

professional killers and perfected by their modern-day descendants. 

Blade techniques, stealth and cunning, defensive methods, ancient 

weapons, assassination plots and treachery in general are all laid out 

in this gripping book. Sold for informational purposes only!

TRUE BLOOD 
by Charles Gatewood and David Aaron Clark 

Blood is more than just liq- 
uid life. For some, it is ele- 
vated to the status of a 
thrilling elixir. In vivid photo- 
graphs arid compelling verse, 
the authors depict the process 
of piercing and bleeding, tast- 
ing and manipulating the scar- 
let stuff as deeply orgasmic 
and highly ritualized. 

This book explores the 
ways people in this under-

by self-mutilation, or allowing 
others to pierce their skin with 
needles, knives, teeth and 
other devices. You can call it a

there's no denying that it's

THE INSTRUMENTS OF TORTURE 
by Michael Kerrigan 

A unique historical 
reference guide com- 
plete with 110 stun- 
ning photographs and 
etchings of the instru- 
ments of torture 
themselves. 

Torture is associ- 
ated most closely with 
the absolute monar- 
chies of history and 
the totalitarian and 
dictatorial regimes of 
the more recent past 
and present day. The 
classical world 

employed it widely 
though by no means 
indiscriminately, while 
in the West it doesn't 
seem to have been 
used systematically 
until the medieval era. 

After the Enlightenment of the eighteenth century, western countries 
began banning it — though actual practice didn't necessarily keep 
pace with official legislation. Even in the last few years, such demo- 
cratic countries as Denmark, the UK, and the United States have at 
one time or another, it is claimed, strayed over the boundary between 
justifiably close and actually abusive questioning. 

The Instruments of Torture looks at the techniques and tools 
used in torture, ranging from the earliest known historical instances of 
the practice right up to the present time and covering practices used 
throughout the world. The different methods of inflicting pain are 
grouped by type (stretching, for instance, having been used particu- 
larly in the European Renaissance as well as being still widespread in 
the Middle East), showing the grim parallels in torture as used in dif- 
ferent cultures and contexts.

BAFFLING MURDER MYSTERIES 

Famous Unsolved Homicides 

by Marilyn Morgan 

Who among us doesn't slow 
down when driving by a traffic 
accident, not just for safety rea- 
sons, but because of an almost 
universally felt macabre Interest in 
what just happened? That same 
kind of curiosity is what impels us 
to keep turning the pages of Baf- 
fling Murder Mysteries. Some 
involve well-known celebrities, like 
"Superman" George Reeves, or 
Bob "Hogan's Heroes" Crane, and 
ex-union leader Jimmy Hoffa. 
Who can forget the Green River 
Killer and his reign of terror in the 
Pacific Northwest? Before serial 
murders were even tagged as 
such, famed "G-Man" Eliot Ness 
was faced with the investigation of 
such a murderer that was the 
beginning of the end of his career. 
Bully Kenneth McElroy both repels and intrigues us as we read of 
an entire town he terrorized. The inhabitants finally stood their ground 
against him in a broad daylight killing, "unseen," in the middle of town. 
We continue to be fascinated by these unsolved murders as we 
look at the facts, and the questions of "Who did if and "How did they 
get away with it" continue to haunt us. Read Baffling Murder Mys-

BURIED ALIVE 

The Terrifying History of Our Most Primal Fear 

by Jan Bondeson 

An engrossing and witty history 
of the fear and the facts of being 
buried alive. Readers of Edgar Allan 
Poe's tales — just think of The Pre- 
mature Burial— may comfort them- 
selves with the notion that Poe must 
have exaggerated: surely people of 
the 1800s could not have been at 
risk of being buried alive? But such 
stories filled medical journals as well 
as fiction, and fear in the populace 
was high. It was speculated, from 
the number of skeletons found in 
horrific, contorted positions inside 
their coffins, that ten out of every 
one hundred people were buried 
before they were dead. 
With over fifty illustrations, Buried Alive explores the medicine, 
folklore, history, and literature of Europe and the United States to 
uncover why such fears arose and whether they were warranted. Jan 
Bondeson looks at legends from the Renaissance of thieves awaken- 
ing supposedly deceased women when they try to steal the women's 
jewelry, as well as people awakening on the way to their funerals or 
even later in the graveyard. He then looks at the bizarre nineteenth- 
century security coffins with bell-ropes or escape hatches, and the 
macabre waiting mortuaries for decaying corpses, as well as the writ- 
ers who were inspired to use themes of premature burial in their work. 
Finally, he questions whether our medical criteria today for determin- 
ing if someone is dead are truly reliable.

MUERTE! 

Death in Mexican Popular Culture 

Edited by Harvey Bennett Stafford 

Warning! Extremely graphic! Death is the primary question. The 
way a culture faces death reveals the way it accepts life. Death, in 
America, is detached from reality and cleansed of its lessons. Too 
close a proximity to death remains taboo. In Mexican popular culture, 
death is treated far differently. Gore-laden tabloid publications like 
Alarma! and Peligro! together sell more than fifteen million copies a 
week. In the Oaxaca district, an entire holiday is devoted to the cele- 
bration of death and its charming ephemera. 

Muerte! pulls no punches in its exploration of the ways and 

means Mexican culture explores the stomach-churning verities of 

death. This singular volume came about as the result of gringo fine 

artist Harvey Stafford's exploration of Mexican tabloid culture. For this 

volume, Stafford accompanied tabloid photographers on their visual 

quest for death scenes, purchasing publication rights to dozens of 

photographs from the photographers themselves. The way Mexican 

tabloids affected his thoughts about death and his attitude towards art 

is revealed in Stafford's introductory text. Reproductions from tabloid 

magazines, translations of typical articles, and articles about tabloid 

publications from the notorious bilingual publication polyester are also 

found in Muerte!, a book that we must warn you is extremely graphic.

100 YEARS OF LYNCHINGS 
by Ralph Ginzburg 



lOO YEARS 

OF 
IXNCHMNGp 




BY RALPU GIXZMVRG 



From distant parts of the United 
States, reports of racial violence fill the 
daily news. That Blacks are killed in 
the streets of New York while being 
beaten and harassed in the hills of 
Georgia, should come as no surprise. 
America has a long but seldom dis- 
cussed history of violence against its 
Black citizens. The typical American 
response has been to ignore this his- 
tory. Unfortunately, this further 
obscures a historical problem which 
can only be resolved through defen- 
sive vigilance and an awareness of 
the scope and nature of the problem. 

First published in 1962, 100 Years 
of Lynchings is as relevant today as 
it was then. It presents the reader with 

vivid newspaper accounts of a "red record of racial atrocities." It is a 
simple and straightforward presentation. Lacking narration, the news 
articles speak for themselves. Through them we witness a history of 
racial atrocities that we cannot afford to forget. Ginzburg skillfully 
selected articles from a wide range of papers, large and small, radical 
and conservative, white and Black. Through them, he has created a 
documentary of lynchings. Few who read this book will remain unaf- 
fected. Out of print since 1972, 100 Years of Lynchings has been on 
the wanted list of many readers. This new reprinting assures contin- 
ued access to this important work and to the tragic history it chroni- 
cles

KILLER KIDS

Kids who kill. Phenomena 
manifesting only in these modern 
times, or just how long has this 
been going on? Michael Newton, 
well known for his previous ency- 
clopedic works on criminals, has 
researched these minor murder- 
ers and the results are in this, his 
latest work, Killer Kids. 

Within the pages of this book 
you will discover that each year 
up to 1 ,500 kids below the legal 
age of 18 commit murders. And 
the numbers are growing higher 
each year. Who are these kids 
and why are they doing this? Find 
out more from Michael Newton: • 
Do males commit more murders 
than their female counterparts? • 
Are more crimes committed by 
kids with prior criminal records? • 

What are the motivations for children to commit murder and may- 
hem? • Which age group is the most likely to kill? • Are most murders 
by kids committed while they are at school? • Just what weapons 
does a kid have access to? • What is "Intermittent Explosive Disorder" 
and how does it relate? • Do Killer Kids work alone or are they more 
likely to kill in packs? • Are they killing their own families or strangers? 

J. Edgar Hoover, long dead director of the FBI, warned us of a 
new crime wave spawned from a juvenile jungle, an army of 
teenaged criminals. Not well known for his psychic abilities, perhaps 
he was more prescient than we knew. Read Killer Kids and perhaps

The Practicalities of Self-Deliverance and 

Assisted Suicide for the Dying 

2000 Version 

by Derek Humphry 

It is proving difficult to enact laws permitting physician-assisted 
suicide for the terminally ill. Where passed, such as in Oregon, they 
are under continual attack. Derek Humphry pledges to keep fighting 
for legislative reforms, for this is truly an idea whose time has come. 
Until the laws are changed, the dying who want relief now must look 
out for themselves. Taking one's own life is not a crime, nor is it a 
felony for another to be present at the act. Therefore, this tape may be 
a dying person's best guide to self-deliverance from unbearable suf- 
fering. Listen with great care. 

Derek Humphry shows you which medicines are the best ones to 
use for self-deliverance, tells you the proper dosage, and shows you 
how to administer the medicine. He also covers much, else regarding 
the act of suicide, including the "plastic bag" method, and why you 
should not use a car to do it. Very informative.

STILL AT LARGE 

A Casebook of 20th Century Serial Killers Who 

Eluded Justice 

by Michael Newton 

Every year in America, more 
than 5,000 killers elude police. And 
most of the notorious murderers 
who slip the grip of the law commit 
the same crime again and again, 
leaving the grisliest of signatures. In 
Still at Large, master of the crime 
encyclopedia . Michael Newton 
(author of Hunting Humans, Bad 
Girls Do It!, Holy Homicide, Cop 
Killers, Killer Cops, and Black Collar 
Crimes) recounts chilling tales of 
unsolved serial murders. In this 
book, you'll meet: 

• "Bible John," who sweeps his 
victims off their feet, literally. 
After he meets young women 
at a ballroom dancing parlor, 
he takes them out and stran- 
gles them with their own stock- 
ings. 

• Belle Gunness, who, after poisoning her children and husbands, 
eliminated a string of ranch hands and left their bodies to decom- 
pose in burlap bags doused with lye. Some say Belle died, but 
others claim they've seen her in a hospital and working as a 
madam. 

• The "Doodler," a killer with a penchant for comic art who has left 
14 gay men dead in his wake. 

• The devil who chooses priests as his prey, mangling them with 
brutal beatings. 

• The "BTK" Strangler, whose m.o. is to bind them, torture them, kill 
them. Frustrated by the lack of publicity, he taunted a local televi- 
sion station with a note that read, "How many do I have to kill 
before I get my name in the paper or some national attention?" 
So you think you'll never be the victim of a serial murderer? Don't 

be so sure. The killers in this book could be lurking in your neighbor- 
hood, your office, even your home. Watch out, because they're Still 
at Large...

UNSPEAKABLE ACTS, ORDINARY PEOPLE 

The Dynamics of Torture 

byJohnConroy 

This book is a compelling investigation of three incidents of torture 
in the Western world and what they tell us about how ordinary people 
can become torturers, about the rationalizations societies adopt to 
justify torture, and about the potential in each of us for acting 
unspeakably. 

Using firsthand interviews, official documents, and newspaper 
accounts, John Conroy examines interrogation practices in a Chicago 
police station, two raids conducted by the Israeli army, and the case 
of Northern Ireland's "hooded men," who were tortured by British 
forces. He takes us inside the experience of the victim, the mind of 
the torturer, and the seeming indifference of the bystander. 

Conroy visits with former torturers, describes their training and 
family backgrounds, and examines the justifications they and their 
societies offer for the systematic abuse of men, women, and children. 
He interviews survivors of torture and learns of the coping mecha- 
nisms they deployed and the long-term effects of their ordeals. He 
draws on those meetings and on previous studies, to help us under- 
stand the dynamics of torture. 

Recent events — particularly the ethnic cleansing in Kosovo and 
well-publicized cases of police brutality in our own country — make it 
essential that we understand such acts of violence, as the first step in 
eradicating them. Lucid and unblinking, Unspeakable Acts, Ordi- 
nary People takes us further toward this goal than any book we have 
seen yet.

BAD GIRLS DO IT! 

An Encyclopedia of Female Murderers 

by Michael Newton 

From the author of 
Hunting Humans: An 
Encyclopedia of Mod- 
ern Serial Killers 
comes the best book 
on female multiple 
murderers ever 

assembled. How "bad" 
are these girls? Every 
one of the 182 women 
profiled here didn't just 
kill — they killed again 
and again! Every one 
of them a multiple mur- 
deress! 

If you thought 
Aileen Wournos was 
the first female serial 
killer, think again. It's 
true she popped six 
men in a year-long 
shooting spree, but 
she'll have to take a 
number behind these death-dealing debs: • Charlene Gallego devel- 
oped a taste for murder gnawing on the bodies of her sex-slave vic- 
tims. She confessed to ten brutal slayings. • Judith Neeley, at age 18, 
became the youngest resident of Alabama's death row. She's still 
there today, waiting to be executed for kidnapping, sexual violence 
and murder. • Martha Beck started her career washing corpses for a 
funeral parlor in Florida and ended it making corpses in Michigan. • 
Elizabeth Bathory used pins, needles, branding irons, whips, pokers, 
scissors — even an iron maiden — to torture young girls to death. 
Charged with 80 murders, she is suspected of more than 300. 

These are just a few of the Necrophilic Nurses, Baby Butchers, 

Black Widows, and Angels of Death chillingly catalogued in this grisly 

collection. Based on ten years of research, Bad Girls Do It! proves 

that the urge to kill is an equal opportunity affliction.

HISTORY OF PUNISHMENT & TORTURE 

A journey through the dark side of justice 

by Karen Farrington 

Killing, maiming and ritual humiliation were once part of everyday 
life — and all these dread acts were carried out in the name of the law 
via the politics of terror. Ingenious methods of perpetrating man's 
inhumanity have been created and the burden on victims has been 
immense. The study of punishment and torture through history is both 
macabre and mesmerizing. In early times the authority of kings and 
noblemen was paramount and the penalty for criminal activity was 
death or serfdom. From the Middle Ages until the 19th century the 
aims of punishment were deterrence and retribution. Consequently, 
the number of offenses in Britain commanding the death penalty by 
the end of the 18th century amounted to more than 200. Little wonder 
that the criminal statutes were known collectively as "The Bloody 
Code." 

In Europe the law required a confession to make a conviction. 
Eager volunteers manned the gruesome torture chambers where 
admissions from wrong doers were exacted. Appalling abuses took 
place in the name of king and country and the human toll rose hand- 
in-hand with the increasing population. This book, exhaustively 
researched and graphically detailed, sheds light on a dark and hidden 
corner of history.

"Most hits are simple affairs.

United States. You will learn 
why silencers are only for the 
movies, and how hit men can 
make their handiwork look like 
suicide.

Easy • History • Today's Hired Killers • Government Killers • Tools and 
Techniques • Acquiring Weapons • Stalking the Target • The Approach

BE YOUR OWN UNDERTAKER 

How to Dispose of a Dead Body 

by A.R. Bowman 

Being forced to kill 
somebody in justifiable 
self-defense is a sad 
reality of today's violent 
society. Unfortunately, it's 
also a sad reality that you 
could be prosecuted for 
your actions by a corrupt, 
incompetent, misguided 
"justice" system. So you 
decide not to call the 
police. Now you're stuck 
with a dead body! How 
do you get yourself out of 
this mess? A.R. Bowman 
has the answers in this 
outrageous study of the 
dark art of freelance 
corpse disposal. He 
explores all of the deli- 
cate options, as well as 
the gruesome "how-to" 
details of making sure 
that it's the thug's body 
rotting away in an 
obscure pit or at the bot- 
tom of Lake Nameless rather than your freedom rotting away unjustly 
in some prison cell. 

You may consider this book disgusting, sacrilegious, and abom- 
inable (and it is), but you also may wish you had read it should you 
ever be faced with a most unpleasant situation someday.

THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF DIM-MAK 

The Main Meridians 
by Erie Montaigue and Wally Simpson 

Based on the acupuncture 
points and the energy channels of 
the body, the ancient Chinese art 
of dim-mak, or death-point strik- 
ing, can be used to maim and kill 
as well as to heal. But until now, 
martial artists have had to rely on 
acupuncture texts for information 
on the points and how they work. 
Unfortunately, this was inadequate 
because the reference books nor- 
mally covered only the healing 
aspects of acupuncture, omitting 
the martial side altogether. 

Combining his own expertise 
with that of Wally Simpson, one of 
Australia's foremost acupunctur- 
ists and an instructor of traditional Chinese medicine for the World 
Taiji Boxing Association, martial-arts expert Erie Montaigue (who, in 
1 985 r became the first Westerner to achieve the degree of "Master" in 
dim-mak and h'ao ch'uan [taijiquan]) set forth to remedy this dearth of 
pertinent and accessible information. The result of the collaborative 
effort of Montaigue and Simpson — the first of a two-volume set — 
covers all of the points on the 12 main energy meridians of the body, 
giving their exact location, the effect of striking them in all possible 
directions, the set-up points one can use to enhance the effect of the 
major point strikes, the antidote methods and the healing applica- 
tions.

KILLER COPS 

An Encyclopedia of Lawless Lawmen 

by Michael Newton 







In America, citizens are killed by the 
police every day of the year. We have 
come to expect that harsh reality, and in 
fact we like our lawmen rough and 
ready, as long as they are blowing away 
someone who apparently deserves it. 
We entrust the police with our lives, and 
in return we give law enforcement per- 
sonnel the benefit of the doubt, assum- 
ing that in most cases such deaths are 
justified as self-defense. 

Killer Cops: An Encyclopedia of 
Lawless Lawmen is not about trigger- 
happy "cowboys" who pursued their 
duties with excessive zeal, nor does it 
second-guess the officers whose han- 
dling of violent suspects led to "acciden- 
tal" deaths in custody. Instead, it lifts a different stone in order to 
scrutinize America's worst nightmare: sworn protectors of the law who 
used their badges as hunting licenses, killing on a whim for profit, sex, 
or personal revenge. 

No rank or agency has been immune from shame in this regard. 
The cases profiled in this book span the continent and run the gamut 
of law enforcement's social scale, from small-town police depart- 
ments to the normally sacrosanct FBI. Patrolmen stand convicted 
side-by-side with sergeants, chiefs, and county sheriffs. From the Old 
West's legendary Wyatt Earp to today's Bad Lieutenants, the pattern 
of homicidal lawlessness is clearly defined. 

As Jack Webb, portraying the LAPD's Joe Friday, once pointed 

out, there will always be a few bad apples to be found among the 

police "because we have to recruit from the human race."

COP KILLERS 

by Michael Newton 

Cops. Some people love them. 
Some people hate them. Some 
people kill them. 

Michael Newton, master of the 
crime encyclopedia, has compiled 
more than 100 cases in which leg- 
endary gangs, religious mercenar- 
ies, and reckless outlaws have 
taken out law enforcers. The author 
of Bad Girls Do It!; Hunting 
Humans; Killer Cops; Black Collar 
Crime, and Raising Hell gives the 
goods on the likes of: • The Black 
Liberation Army, whose members 
made it their mission to rid the ghet- 
tos of police. The killings were, for 
them, victorious battles in a revolu- 
tion for black freedom. • The 
teenager driving a stolen car who 
claimed that rap music persuaded him to kill the officer who pulled 
him over. • Con man Gerald Chapman, who developed fan clubs 
across the country after a string of robberies, jail breaks and murders. 
• The "neighbor from hell" Carl Drega, whose chronic complaints and 
simmering rage finally exploded, resulting in bloodshed and death. 

In this book, you'll get the complete truth behind the tales, and a 
closer look at the tragic way some cops ended their careers. This trib- 
ute seeks to preserve the memory and honor of those killed in the line 
of duty.

HOLY HOMICIDE 

An Encyclopedia of Those Who Go 

With Their God... and Kill! 

by Michael Newton 



'"'MODE 



An Encylopedia of Those Who 
Go With TheirGod... And KOI! 




Michael Newton 



Human beings kill one another for all 
sorts of reasons, but none are stranger or 
more incomprehensible than religion! Holy 
Homicide: An Encyclopedia of Those 
Who Go With Their God... and Kill! is a 
lexicon of murders attributed to instructions 
from deities, whether committed by unsta- 
ble loners, organizations, or armies. As 
demonstrated by the atrocities enumerated 
within this book's pages, religion is among 
the oldest, most persistent motives for mur- 
der throughout human history. Millions, per- 
haps billions, of victims have suffered and 
died throughout the ages, all in the name of 
one god or another. 
Murder maven Michael Newton, author of such books as Hunting 
Humans, Bad Girls Do It! and Black Collar Crimes, has outdone him- 
self in this grisly sampler of divinity-directed death. 

These and many more persons and groups have demonstrated 
that no atrocity is too heinous, no massacre is too outrageous... just 
as long as the killing is directed by a force that is greater than the per- 
petrator! Newton has included entries for cults (Aum Shinrikyo, 
Heaven's Gate, Order of the Solar Temple, "People's Temple," etc.), 
historical overviews (Biblical Bloodshed, Capital Punishment, Cru- 
sades, Human Sacrifice, Inquisition, Religious Wars, Terrorism), 
organized religions and groups (including Ku Klux Klan, Mormons, 
and Nation of Islam), and other dire classifications. 

Maybe the Devil made 'em do it... or perhaps it was Jehovah! 
Whatever the supernatural reasons were, they're all here in the pages 
of Holy Homicide: An Encyclopedia of Those Who Go With Their 
God... and Kill!

SURVIVAL WITH THE ATLATL 
by Bill Tate 

Twenty-thousand years ago, in what is now Europe, a Cro 
Magnon hunter fitted the concave end of a short spear or dart into a 
carved hook of antler. Holding the antler in his hand, steadying the 
dart with his fingers, he took careful aim at a large bison and with a 
throwing motion, released the dart with tremendous thrust to make his 
kill. 

We will never know what genius first designed this device. The 
inventor of this amazing weapon is hidden, lost in time, a thousand 
generations ago. Thousands of years later in other parts of the world, 
similar spear throwers or spear slings were independently invented. 
Australian aborigines used them, and called them "woomeras," 
Eskimo hunters used them, early Americans seven thousand years 
ago used them, and at the time of contact, the Spanish found Aztecs 
waging war with these "atlatls." Atlatl, pronounced with the emphasis 
on the second syllable as in "Atlantic" is possibly the Toltec word for 
spear thrower. The later Aztecs adopted the weapon and its Toltec 
name, a name gaining acceptance by archeologists in America. 

Survival With the Atlatl gives you illustrated, step-by-step direc- 
tions for making your own inexpensive atlatl, and shows you how to 
use it with accuracy. Learn all about this Ice Age hunting weapon — 
learn how to make and use the atlatl.

How to Prevail When Lost, Stranded,

A survival guide that's also a 
good read! Even if you don't 
equip yourself with all the sur- 
vival tools recommended in this 
book, reading the compelling 
accounts of actual life-and-death 
situations will teach you, above 
all, the importance of thinking 
clearly and accurately assessing 
your priorities when the unex- 
pected happens. That alone 
could save your life. Go the next

your pack according to the 
author's advice, and you can 
consider yourself ready for just 
about anything. This book

tors in surviving an injury, getting 
lost, or being stranded while hiking, skiing, snowmobiling or hunting in 
a wilderness area, and demonstrates how to assess your situation 
and act appropriately.

services in the Rocky Mountains, plus his own encounters with sur- 
vival situations. He addresses finding water, using a map and com- 
pass, fire-starting, shelter, first aid, detectability, survival in a car, and 
more, explained clearly and simply. Real-life stories make it fascinat-

RAGNAR'S URBAN SURVIVAL 

A Hard-times Guide to Staying Alive in the City 

by Ragnar Benson 

In this, his ultimate handbook on surviving in the city, Ragnar Ben- 
son, America's leading survival author, debunks the myth that the only 
way to survive a crisis is to stock a retreat in the mountains and 
shows how properly prepared urban dwellers can make it through any 
emergency. He tells you how to find, purify, and store water in the city; 
trap wild game; butcher what you've caught or raised; use the abun- 
dant (and free) food sources common to almost every city; preserve 
food for lean times; position your retreat for maximum safety; avoid 
troops; and barter with other survivors. You'll learn which weapons 
are absolute necessities and which aren't worth having, and confront 
the all-important topic of survival nursing care for the ill and injured. 

Gleaning advice from survivors who have lived through cata- 
strophic events in Beirut, Berlin, and Karachi, Ragnar gives you the 
solid information you will need to make it if the worst-case scenario 
becomes a reality.

DITCH MEDICINE 

Advanced Field Procedures for Emergencies 

by Hugh L. Coffee 

Whether it's a war zone or a civil disaster site, in today's danger- 
ous world, traumatic injuries are likely to occur in remote, often 
unsanitary locations. However, as a rule, modern emergency medi- 
cine — including mobile hospitals and rapid evacuation to established 
trauma centers — fails to reach injured patients in the field. It is in just 
such a scenario — where physicians are not found, patient transport 
is measured in days instead of minutes, resources are limited and the 
environment is hostile — that the pre-hospital care provider is in his or 
her element. 

This book covers advanced medical procedures in a field setting. 
Photographs, illustrations and real-life case studies provide lessons 
and step-by-step instructions for improvised care, from stitching a 
small wound to amputations to treating burns, anaphylactic shock and 
decompressing and draining a chest. These are the techniques that 
can tip the balance between life and death.

ABOMAN'S GUIDE TO 

WILDERNESS SCHOOLS 

AND PRIMITIVE EVENTS 

by J. A. Bigley 

Earth Connection, Paleotechnics, Rabbitstick Rendezvous, Glass 
Buttes Knap-In. These are just a few of the schools and events where 
people from all walks of life awaken to the skills and lifeways of our 
primitive ancestors. This informative guide includes information about 
curricula, instructors' backgrounds, and philosophy of each regional 
school, as well as descriptions, dates and costs of the primitive gath- 
erings around the country. Attending one of these special events or 
schools gives one the feeling of the old tribal way of life and refreshes 
the spirit. 

Author J.A. Bigley, retired navy officer, offers the point of interest 
in each region, giving helpful comments about the schools and shar- 
ing his belief that "Aboman lives within each of us. He surfaces when- 
ever someone stops to study a track, picks wildflowers, goes hiking in 
the rain, or tells stories around a night fire. Whether one's desire is to 
get back to nature on a full-time basis, or just enjoy a walk in the park, 
it is our own personal Aboman coming to the forefront, and leading us 
in that direction."

SNOW CAVES 
For Fun & Survival 
by Ernest Wilkinson 

In a harsh winter climate, snow can either kill you or save your life. 
This indispensable guide tells you all you need to know about how to 
use snow to your advantage by constructing snow caves, igloos and 
shelters. Whether you're camping, hunting, lost or just fooling around, 
you'll need to know about the insulating properties of snow that Eski- 
mos, animals, birds, and other snow-dwellers use every day. 

What's more, chapters on winter safety, food, tools and gear serve 
as an indispensable reference guide. 

Author Ernest Wilkinson says: "How many rabbits have you seen 
sitting by a fire to keep warm? 

"This may sound like a silly question, but give it some thought. 
The human critter has become dependent upon fire for bodily comfort 
in a cold environment. Hunters, hikers and other outdoor people have 
perished because they could not get a fire started to help keep them 
warm in cold weather. They should have taken a lesson from rabbits 
and other wildlife that use the available materials of nature." 

Now you can learn those lessons too — lessons that could mean 
the difference between life and death.

PRIMITIVE TECHNOLOGY 

A Book of Earth Skills from 

the Society of Primitive Technology 

Edited by David Wescott 

Have you ever longed to return to a past where humanity's great- 
est concern was survival, when our hands created life's necessities, 
when the land's raw provisions were the materials with which we cre- 
ated warmth, shelter, food, and tools — a time before we lost our 
bond with the wilderness? Primitive Technology helps build a bridge 
between the ancient past and our modern lives, putting us in touch 
again with nature and ourselves. This volume portrays the history, 
philosophies, and personal journeys of authorities on primitive tech- 
nology, imparting skills that built the success of mankind. From views 
on primitive technology and "new" archaeology to making fire and 
tools of bone, stone, and wood; from methods of binding fibers and 
producing projectiles to creating art and music — Primitive Technol- 
ogy is instructive and informative, enlightening the participant with 
skills of centuries past when mankind became divorced from the earth 
through the isolation and conveniences of modern life.

SURVIVALIST'S MEDICINE CHEST 
by Ragnar Benson 

Now, a truly practical guide about using specialized medicines in a 
world without doctors, written especially for survivalists. Pneumonia, 
VD, plague and diarrhea — killers without modern drugs — can be 
licked with a little preparation and know-how. 

From his years helping Third World natives with vet medicines, 
survivalist author Ragnar Benson brings you this handbook for doc- 
toring humans with readily obtainable, cheaply priced vet medicines. 
In many cases, vet medicines are identical to those M.D.s recom- 
mend — at a fraction of the cost. And they can be bought without pre- 
scriptions and stored until an emergency demands their use. 

Tetanus, typhoid and gun-wound infections will never again strike 
fear in the heart of survivalists who read this book. Pack this illus- 
trated handbook in with your antibiotics, syringes, sulfa drugs, sewing 
needles and sutures, and you'll save your group from the illnesses 
that would prove fatal without modern medicine.

CONTINGENCY CANNIBALISM 

Superhardcore Survivalism's Dirty Little Secret 

by Shiguro Takada 

Let's cut the crap. Survivalism is not about niceties and polite top- 
ics. It's about desperately fighting for your life in a hostile environ- 
ment, where you are forced to make disturbing, dirty choices in order 
to live to see the next sunrise. And practicing cannibalism is the sur- 
vival's ultimate test of his will to live. 

Contingency Cannibalism is a twisted, morbid, tongue-in-cheek, 
and hilarious look at cannibalism as a last-resort survival option.. 
Pulling no punches, it answers such pressing questions as: Does it 
taste like chicken? What will my friends and family say? Will I get a 
disease? What if I like it? 

Author Shiguro Takada analyzes real-life case studies of deter- 
mined survivors who bravely engaged in cannibalism to save their 
hides, including the infamous Donner party, the Uruguayan rugby 
team stranded in the Andes Mountains, and homicidal "mountain 
guide" Alfred Packer. He also dissects historical episodes of wide- 
scale cannibalism practiced in Scotland, Mexico, China, Russia, and 
Africa for vital lessons on how not to practice contingency cannibal- 
ism. Finally, Takada serves up the hard-core decisions and gruesome 
details one must know in order to partake in this grisly but sometimes 
necessary practice. 

Doing exactly what it takes to survive in the worst of times is not 
for the squeamish, but the bottom line is it produces survivors. Read 
this book and find out if you have what it takes. Recipes included. For 
entertainment purposes only

An accurate sundial is simple to make and inexpensive. Sam

everyone's disappointment. His clear directions include diagrams for 
each step from construction, to set-up, and use. Sam Muller's modern 
sundial is an amazing scientific tool. By its shadow you can read cor- 
rect clock time, and also observe the effects of the earth's tilt, rotation, 
and changing orbital speed. Then on a moonlit night from the shadow 
cast on your now "moondial," you will notice the moon's counterclock-

THE HUMANURE HANDBOOK 

A Guide to Composting Human Manure 

by J.C. Jenkins 

This fascinating and practical book is about gardening, compost- 
ing, sustainability, waste reduction, resource recovery, public sanita- 
tion, and sewage treatment. I.t is an uncommon work that takes on the 
controversial topic of safely recycling human manure for agricultural 
purposes, doing so with boldness and humor. It focuses on compost- 
ing urine and fecal material at the single family level and using the 
compost for gardening purposes, contending that all organic material 
is resource material. It covers the issue of recycling human excre- 
ment from historical, philosophical, and scientific perspectives. It 
explains how human excrement can be rendered hygienically safe 
and returned to the soil without the need for expensive equipment, 
high costs, or professional expertise. 

Chapters include: • Crap Happens • Microhusbandry • Deep Shit • 
A Day in the Life of a Turd • Composting Toilets and Systems • Worms 
and Disease • The Tao of Compost • And more. 

This unique illustrated book is written by a composting practi- 
tioner, providing hard to find information that is potentially important to 
any adult. It is essential reading for anyone who lives without electric- 
ity or running water either by choice, culture, or emergency situation. 
It is of interest to organic gardeners and farmers, survivalists, back-to- 
the-landers, recyclers, public health and sanitation people, and any- 
one who defecates.

ONE ACRE & SECURITY 

How to Live Off the Earth Without Ruining It 

by Bradford Angier 

We are happy to see back in 
print Bradford Angier's classic 
One Acre & Security: How to 
Live Off the Earth Without Ruin- 
ing It First published in 1972, 
Angier was one of the preeminent 
voices of the back-to-the-earth 
movement. One Acre & Security 
is a book for all those who have 
dreamed of living close to the 
earth — not in the wilderness, but 
on land within easy driving dis- 
tance of the city or suburbs. It 
begins by explaining what sort of 
land to look for, where to look and 
how to acquire property. It goes 
on to discuss organic gardening 
on one acre; raising herbs for 
money and bees for honey; grow- 
ing grapes; making wine, juice 
and jellies; and drying raisins. For the serious back-to-the-earther, 
there are sections on how to build a house; keep cows, goats, sheep, 
pigs and poultry; raise rabbits, earthworms, fish, frogs and turtles; 
and how to find the best hunting and fishing. Angier's text is as useful 
and thorough today as it was 30 years ago, and deserves to be on the 
shelves of a new generation of back-to-earthers. This edition retains 
all of the text of the original version, plus a new introduction and 
extensive notes to provide up-to-date resource information and fasci-

Country Living is 

Risky Business 



COUNTRY LIVING IS RISKY BUSINESS 
by Nick and Anita Evangelista 



Do you have your feet planted 
in the city but find yourself living 
more and more like you are in the 
country? Authors Nick and Anita 
Evangelista didn't know it then, but 
with the planting of a garden and 
the raising of a few chickens and 
rabbits and goats at their house (a 
mere 10 minutes from downtown 
Los Angeles) they'd taken their first 
steps on a journey that would lead 
them to a fixer farm in the Missouri 
Ozarks. 

In this, their latest book on the 
logistics of making the move from 
city to country life, the Evangelistas 
tell their own story and give you 
their honest appraisal of what kind 
of "stuff' it takes to make that move 
to the country, along with a liberal dose of laughs. You'll find out what 
kind of preparation and mind set it really takes to make that plunge 
from city to country. You'll discover how to keep going when every- 
thing around you seems to conspire to tell you this move was a huge 
mistake. Nick and Anita will give you invaluable advice about pur- 
chasing and care of livestock when you are a raw recruit and new to 
country life. This book shows you the underpinnings of living in the 
country, along with a rain dance and the requisite Elvis story thrown in 
just to make sure all the bases are covered. 

This is the book that tells you how it happened for them. It can 

happen for you, too. If you think country living may be the life for you, 

get this book today, because Country Living is Risky Business.

THE HOME WATER SUPPLY 

How to Find, Filter, Store, and Conserve It 

by Stu Campbell 

If you live in the country or 
suburbs, you've had, are having, 
or will have water problems. 
What's yours? Not enough 
water? Too much? Tastes terri- 
ble? The pump quits? The 
water's contaminated? No mat- 
ter what it is, author Stu Camp- 
bell addresses it in this book, and 
offers down-to-earth solutions in 
language understandable to all 
of us who aren't plumbers. 

Campbell has coped with 
water problems in both the East 
and the West, from the many- 
state shortages of the West to a 
cantankerous pump in Vermont. 
And he's probed the minds of 
experts — dowsers, well diggers, 
plumbers, electricians, and those 
who know about the flow of water 
deep underground. In a friendly, knowledgeable manner, Campbell 
discusses your difficulties. He provides concrete and money-saving 
answers to questions that range from locating water to digging a pond 
to hooking up the plumbing in your home. You will know when to try 
something yourself, and when to call a plumber or other expert. 

Topics covered include: • How to find water • How to move it • How 
to purify it • How to store and distribute it in your home • and more. 

The profuse illustrations take the mystery out of things such as the 
underground flow of water and how pumps* and other water-linked 
equipment operate.

BECOMING SELF-RELIANT 

How to Become Less Dependent 

on Society and the Government 

by Ken Larson 

As we look at our world 
today, our future seems uncer- 
tain. We have indeed lost many 
of the "basics" known and prac- 
ticed by our forefathers. We 
have become dependent on a 
very fragile system which is 
generally not operated in our 
best interest. There is a need to 
return to a respectful knowledge 
of the land, learning self-reliant 
skills, and to frugal practices of 
storing consumable goods and 
barter items. Now you can be 
ready! 

You will learn: • How and 
where to store precious water • 
How to store food before you 
need it • Unusual meat sources 
you can raise anywhere • How 
to survive major storms and hur- 
ricanes • How to use fish traps 
for food and profit • The importance of bartering goods and food • Bulk 
commodity storage and dehydrated foods • Nutrition facts and multi- 
pliers • Drying foods at home • And much more.

DO-IT-YOURSELF MEDICINE 

How to Find and Use the Most Effective 

Antibiotics, Painkillers, Anesthetics, and Other 

Miracle Drugs... Without Costly Doctors' 

Prescriptions or Hospitals 

by Ragnar Benson 



The title says it all! When Ragnar 
Benson wrote the Survivalisfs Med- 
icine Chest in 1982, he changed the 
way that people looked at survival 
medicine. He opened their eyes to 
the wonderful world of veterinary 
medicines for treating people, and 
how to use foreign pharmacies to 
obtain over-the-counter prescription 
drugs. 

With this latest book, Benson 
brings do-it-yourself medicine into 
the 21st century. He explains how to 
procure the very latest antibiotics, 
painkillers, anesthetics, and other 
drugs — as well as needles, IV kits, 
splints, and other equipment — from 

animal-health centers, foreign phar- 

macies, military dispensaries, mail- 
order suppliers, dentists, and other unconventional and inexpensive 
sources, and provides references for detailed instructions for using 
these supplies to treat cuts, burns, gunshot wounds, fevers, broken 
bones, infections, and other maladies, as well as ways to circumvent 
the impediments the government and medical community have 
established to keep these medicines and supplies out of your hands. 

If you want to learn how to assume responsibility for your own 

medical care, avoid the medical bureaucracy, maintain a ready store 

of medicine and know-how, and monitor the medical care you receive 

from professionals, this is the book to read. For academic study only.

MORE POWER TO YOU! 

A Proven Path to Electric Energy Independence 

by H. Skip Thomsen 

H. Skip Thomsen says, "In 1979 we moved to a beautiful 108 
acres of forest in north central Oregon. The nearest power line was a 
little more than half a mile down the road. Even before the utility com- 
pany quoted us $10,000 to run in power, we had pretty much decided 
to generate our own electricity. In the year before we moved, we paid 
a lot of attention to how the folks who would soon be our neighbors 
were dealing with their lack of 'store-bought' power. They relied on 
smelly, dangerous kerosene lamps for most of their lighting. They 
used small, gasoline-powered generators to run what few electrical 
gadgets they felt were necessary. 

"We have lived with our full-featured, automatic, 24-hour-a-day 
system, running both our household and shop, long enough to work 
the bugs out. Our equipment includes a fine stereo system, TV & 
VCR, microwave, small and large appliances and a complete office 
with two computers, printers and a copier. The shop has an air com- 
pressor and both large and small power tools. We have had no black- 
outs, £>rown-outs, nor rate hikes in ten years. And operation of the 
entire system costs us about $25.00 per month." 

In easy-to-understand conversational language, More Power to 
Youi is intentionally as non-technical as possible, addressing the 
need for clear, concise, and complete instructions to a specific end 
result: an owner-built, owner-operated power system which will 
deliver all it promises, without the need for the owner to be an electri- 
cal engineer. This system has been proven with years of trouble-free 
service for far less money than public power would have cost. More 
Power to Youl is required reading for anyone interested in freeing 
himself from the power monopolies.

THE MODERN HOMESTEAD MANUAL 

What it Really Takes to Succeed Beyond the 

Sidewalks and Power Lines 

Revised and Updated Second Edition 

by Skip Thomsen and Cat Freshwater 



THE MODERN 

Homestead Mamml 



wlOti Vm4rfstrr 



Homesteaders represent the 
antithesis of "consumers." Home- 
steaders by their nature, create, 
nourish, and nurture. Homestead- 
ers are worthy stewards of the 
Earth. The modern homesteader 
strives for autonomy, self-confi- 
dence and self-sufficiency. 

To some, self-sufficiency is 
nothing less than raising all of 
one's food; creating buildings, 
clothes and furniture from sal- 
vaged materials; and living with- 
out electricity. To others, the 
meaning is far less strict, but no 
less meaningful. The Modern 
Homestead Manual is the prod- 
uct of 15 years of hands-on home- 
steading experience on the part of the authors. Chapters include: • 
Self reliance • Togetherness • Money Matters • The Year Before • The 
Destination • The Big Move • Country Neighbors •Homestead Kids • 
Buying a House •Building Your Own House • Alternative Electrical 
Systems • Our Own Electrical System • Water Systems on Alternative 
Power • Equipment • Vehicles • Getting the Most Out of Your Wood 
Stove • Earning Your Keep at Home • When Things Looty Hopeless • 
And more, including a Resource Guide. 

The Modern Homestead Manual builds hope and confidence, 
dispels myths, and tells it like it is. The focus of The Modern Home- 
stead Manual is on what it really takes to make it beyond the power 
lines and sidewalks.

ple words and drawings what he can do to prevent, recognize and 
treat many common sicknesses.

useful for specific sicknesses and warns against ones that are use- 
less or dangerous. Risks and precautions are carefully explained. 

The Village Health Worker, or anyone who is concerned about the 
health and well-being of those in his community. This English edition 
has a new introductory section for the village health worker, dis- 
cussing ways to determine needs, share knowledge, and involve the

ALL ABOUT HYDRAULIC RAM PUMPS 

How and Where They Work 

Pump Water for Free! 

The Hydraulic Ram Water Pump is a piece of Americana that is as 
useful today as ever. Utilizing a simple principle, the hydraulic ram 
can pump water above a source of flowing water with no other power 
required. A popular use for a ram pump system is the small home- 
stead or remote homesite. A stream, spring or river is the water 
source; water running downhill provides the power for the ram, and 
water is pumped to a storage tank above the level of the house or gar- 
den, or to a small decorative or fish pond. A hydraulic ram pump 
should be able to maintain a V* acre pond year round — in many cli- 
mates this size pond can produce a significant aquaculture crop. 

This booklet contains complete plans for building your own 
hydraulic ram pump, as well as sources for manufactured purrips.

HOW TO GROW MORE VEGETABLES 

Than You Ever Thought Possible 

on Less Land Than You Can Imagine 

6th Edition 

by John Jeavons 

If you have been looking 
for the way to grow the most 
food with the least land, water 
and fertilizer — this is it. 
Mother Earth News calls this 
book "the best plain-language 
explanation of 

Biodynamic/French Intensive 
gardening techniques we've 
yet seen." 

And another reviewer 
says, "perhaps the best kept 
secret of the 20th century, in 
working with the land, people 
are more productive than 
machinery... we may see food 
gardens appearing... in win- 
dow boxes, on rooftops, in 
vacant lots, in parks, in now 
blighted urban wastelands... a greening of the cities." 

With this method a backyard gardener could grow a year's supply 
of soft fruits and vegetables in under two hundred square feet of soil 
per person, with about ten minutes a day required for upkeep. Here in 
one place is a complete guide to planning your garden, instructions 
on the unique Biodynamic/French Intensive techniques, information 
on sources for seeds, and compost recipes. By working "in harmony 
with the sun, air, rain, soil, moon, insects, plants and animals rather 
than attempting to dominate them" you can enjoy the most bountiful 
harvest of the year.

COOKING WITH THE SUN 

How to Build and Use Solar Cookers 

by Beth Halacy and Dan Halacy

Cooking With the Sun clearly 
explains how to build solar cookers, how 
to use them and what to cook in them — 
offering 100 recipes. Before you start 
chuckling at what appears to be a '60s 
fringe group trying to brew tea in a bottle 
in the back yard, consider this: Lasagna, 
soft and supple, with no burned edges; 
Thai chicken curry with aromatic rice; 
Chocolate chip cookies, crisp on the bot- 
tom. "Solar cooking is not a passing fad 
but is a welcome switch to a superior 
method," says Dr. Robert Metcalf, Pro- 
fessor of Biological Sciences, Sacra- 
mento State University. 

Cooking With the Sun is the only book available on how to har- 
ness the sun's energy in preparing food. It presents detailed plans, 
liberally illustrated with 37 line drawings and 26 black and white pho- 
tos, for building solar ovens that can cook a 12-pound turkey in three 
hours, and a solar reflector "hot plate" that perks coffee and cooks 
steak, bacon and eggs, hotcakes and other stove-top meals. And as a 
bonus, it gives directions on how to build a simple solar box cooker 
out of cardboard. 

Cooking With the Sun is a must for campers who want to cook 
safely in wooded areas without the need for a fire — no smoke, no 
ashes, just clean, hot heat!

FUEL FROM WATER 

Energy Independence with Hydrogen 

10th Edition 

by Michael A. Peavey 

End our dependency on imported 
oil and clean up the air with the most 
plentiful element in the universe! 
Hydrogen fuel may be the ultimate 
solution to both air pollution and our 
precarious dependency upon imported 
energy. Hydrogen is the most plentiful 
element in the universe. It can be used 
as fuel for your car, heating and electri- 
cal power for your house. When hydro- 
gen burns, only water vapor is 
produced. 

Fuel From Water shows you how 
to: • Build a hydrogen generator with 
simple step-by-step instructions and 
illustrations, including a parts list of readily available materials • Store 
hydrogen safely in a hydride, liquid or pressurized gas storage • Con- 
vert a gasoline-powered engine to run on hydrogen, or a combination 
of hydrogen and gasoline. 

Researchers from universities, private firms, and government 
agencies have shown hydrogen to be a safe and efficient fuel. In Fuel 
From Water, you will read how: • Several prominent universities have 
shown that engine wear is less with hydrogen, air pollution is almost 
nonexistent and combustion efficiency is greater, than with gasoline • 
The US Postal Service converted Jeeps to run on hydrogen in daily 
use • An entire homestead uses hydrogen fuel for autos, lawn trac- 
tors, and a gas range • And much more. 

Affordable, clean and safe energy is not some "pie in the sky" fan- 
tasy. The technology is available today to clean up the air and elimi- 
nate the need for military intervention to protect our energy supplies 
overseas.

SIMPLE LIVING INVESTMENTS 

For a Truly Secure and Adventurous Old Age 

by Michael Phillips 

This short book explicitly discusses "simple living," a concept that 
frightens many people who believe making a lot of money is the only 
way to live and that low income is synonymous with poverty, sadness, 
filth and depression. Do not read this if you are mentally ill, lazy, con- 
sidered stupid by your friends or could in any way be tempted to quit 
a good paying, stable job by reading this booklet. 

Summary: A realistic analysis of old age leads to an uncommon 
investment strategy for people with simple living values. The priority 
of investment choices are health, friends, skills, an austerity test, and 
for salaried people a rental house to be sold at age 55. 

An old person is the same as a young person, but the body is dif- 
ferent. Young bores become old bores, neat young people are neat 
when they grow old, and old lechers were once young lechers. Old 
age may mean less earning power and less money to live on. The 
best way to prepare for that situation, Michael Phillips says, is to 
learn, while young, how to live fully but simply, using the least possi- 
ble resources to maintain a satisfying life. A person who knows the 
meaning of elegant frugality is better prepared for aging than one who 
has spent decades hustling money to stuff into bank accounts and 
property. 

Very thought provoking, and well worth reading. The best invest- 
ment book we know of, next to The Alpha Strategy!

THE MODERN SURVIVAL RETREAT 

A New and Vital Approach to 

Retreat Theory and Practice 

by Ragnar Benson 

The deadly actions at Ruby Ridge and Waco are but two of the 
more blatant examples of government use of overwhelming force 
against American citizens. Today people must contend with a host of 
regulators, bureaucrats and other officials who want to micromanage 
how we work, play, interact, and simply live. But make no mistake 
about it — if you attempt to defy these authorities in the open, you will 
be taken down, often at the point of a gun. You will lose your freedom 
and you could lose your life. 

In the face of this new threat, Ragnar Benson revisits the factors 
that go into planning and using a survival retreat today. Besides dis- 
cussing such nuts-and-bolts items as picking a retreat location and 
stocking it, he provides provocative answers to such vital issues as: • 
Identifying the enemy • Recognizing trip wire events • Finding like- 
minded retreaters • What to expect when the government goes hard- 
core against you... and a host of new ways to foil their threats. 

A retreat is a place to go and live, not a place to be cornered and 
die. Find out how you can maximize your chances of survival in a 
retreat and live to enjoy a free world.

found that many prospective retirees, once they have narrowed their 
choices to a certain section of the country, need more detailed infor- 
mation before they are prepared to make their final decision. Others 
already know where they plan to retire and want to zero in on that par- 
ticular area from the get-go. With those readers in mind, Howells has 
written a series 6f regional retirement guides for the United States, 
including Choose the Southwest 

Howells strongly believes that the years of relaxation that follow a 
life of productive work should be the most rewarding of one's life, and 
has made every effort to seek out locations that will make this possi- 
ble for those who are planning to relocate in their Golden Years. So,

BLUEPRINT FOR PARADISE 

How to Live on a Tropic Island 

by Ross Norgrove 

Ross Norgrove found land, built 
a house, and lives quite contentedly 
on a tropic island, and he tells you 
how you can do it, too. In Blueprint 
for Paradise he answers in detail 
such tough questions as: • How can 
you, from thousands of miles away, 
select the island that matches your 
needs and your hoped-for lifestyle? 
• What barriers will the island gov- 
ernment place in your path? • What 
should you look for when you buy 
property? • What should you con- 
sider when you build a house? • 
What are the upfront costs? • What 
are the hidden costs? • What about 
food? Water? Medical Care? 

Norgrove guides you through the 
initial choice of an island, the queries to the island government, the 
building and equipping of a new home, and the process of settling into 
a new and very different life. He tells about gardening in the tropics, 
building a dock, owning a boat, communicating with the outside 
world, clothing, medical care, education of children, hurricanes, own- 
ing your own island, taxes, costs, and custom fees. He provides 
addresses to write for specific information from all the major tropic 
island groups. There are hundreds of thousands of islands in the 
world's tropic belt, and one of them could be your next home!

THE LAST OF THE MOUNTAIN MEN 

The True Story of an Idaho Solitary 

by Harold Peterson 



'llje Last of the 

Moufitain Men 

'fhsf (rm skay <>f*tn {Uafn • iootmp 




This is the true story of Sylvan 
Hart, who carved out his own pri- 
vate Idaho on four acres at Five 
Mile Bar on The River of No 
Return. 

As a young man, dismayed by 
the destruction of the final fron- 
tiers, Sylvan Hart recanted civiliza- 
tion and marched off into the Idaho 
wilderness armed with a few sta- 
ples, an ax, a rifle, and a master's 
degree in engineering. 

There in the last wilderness, 
where one winter's snows might 
fall into another's before a visitor 
came, he became the Last of the 
Mountain Men. He fashioned his 
clothes of deerskin. He con- 
structed adobe-covered buildings 
with hand-hewn timbers. He mined copper, smelted it, refined it, and 
made utensils. He even made his own flintlock rifles, boring them on 
an ingenious handmade machine, to "save the bother of store- 
bought" ammunition. To pay for infrequent trips to the nearest town 
(pop. 6, in winter 0), where he purchased only powder, books and 
Darjeeling tea, he panned gold. This is the true story of this amazing 
and unique individual, his life and his thoughts. 

"My reaction to the Depression was to find a place with the natural 
resources to defeat it. I could have found no better place than Salmon 
River. I spent some $50 a year then for what little I needed to buy. I 
always had a garden. It was easy to get fruit and I made moccasins 
and clothing out of animal skins."

The Next American Revolution 

by Larry Roth 

Larry Roth says: "Hate your job? Do something about it! My father 
used to tell me about a hound dog who was lying on his balls and 
howling. The dog was howling because he was in pain, but, at the 
same time, he was too lazy to do anything about his own sltuationl 

"Well, I can't help thinking about that hound dog when I hear 
Americans whining about how unhappy they are with their energy- 
sapping jobs. These are the same people I see out paying retail for 
the latest gewgaws they'll be offering in their next garage sales a few 
months later. Most Americans seem to think their lives are like a TV 
show. There'll be a happy ending, and they won't even have to leave 
their easy chair. So they stay in their jobs, waste their money, and 
whine. Like the hound dog. And some of them will wind up retired, the 
walking wounded, after the years and the stress have taken their toll. 
Many others will wind up out the corporate door in their fifties, victims 
of downsizing and hard-to-prove age discrimination. These people 
will wonder where their happy endings went! 

"Beating the System examines what is wrong with the modern 
American workplace, but it doesn't stop there. It offers workers a way 
out with dignity. And I am living proof that the solution is not hypothet- 
ical. Beating the System provides its readers with the tools I used to 
leave Corporate America and discusses how, even if one 'loves', his or 
her job, one had better be prepared to live without it in these days of 
mergers and downsizing." 

Larry Roth is a Loompanics kind of guy — let him share what he 
has learned about Beating the System.

THE HUMAN COUGAR 
by Lloyd L Morain 

The Human Cougar is a fiercely independent person who might 
be encountered on waterfronts and highways, in rail yards, hobo jun- 
gles, orchards, cattle ranches, mines, logging camps, bars and coffee 
shops. The Human Cougar is an endangered species. Roaming 
about, free from regimentation, overlooked by bureaucrats, and 
largely outside of social welfare systems, he often escapes notice. 
Yet this outsider is very much a part of American life, and the West as 
we know it was largely created by this brand of working drifter. 

Chapters include: • Sighting the Cougar • They've Long Been 
Around • What Cougars Aren't • Five Cougars Speak for Themselves 
• Early Life and Escape • Work Habits and Experiences • Cougar 
Habitats: Jungles, Missions, Flophouses and Parks • Family Life and 
Marriage • Cougarish Personal Attitudes • Authority, The Enemy • 
Roaming and Goofing Off • And more. 

Our heavily institutionalized modern society is inhospitable to the 
Human Cougar, but there are millions of individuals among us who 
have a latent Cougar strain. Those with a Cougar strain can better 
understand their own inner stirring by gaining knowledge of the inde- 
pendent hard-living breed now ebbing into extinction.

SURVIVING ON THE STREETS 

How to Go DOWN Without Going OUT 

by Ace Backwords 

Street people! We see them frequently In our day-to-day travels, 
but we don't have a clue as to how they survive on the streets. We 
may get brief glimpses into their world, the missions, the ragged indi- 
viduals .asking for spare change, the soup kitchens, but Ace Back- 
words gives us our first real foray into daily life on the streets. 

Intended to be written as a how-to for anyone contemplating or 
more likely thrust by circumstances into street life, it is an uncensored 
and candid look at an entirely different world that exists co-depend- 
ently with the one with which most of us are familiar. 

Ace envisions this as a book that would have been of benefit to 
him at age seventeen, when he first hit an on-ramp with his thumb out 
27 years ago. He has lived years on and sometimes off the streets, 
but seems to have settled into a life enmeshed in the street scene. 

'To some the streets are their worst nightmare, losing security, job, 
possessions, everything they cling to — a lost soul in a twilight world 
with nothing. To others it may be a cherished fantasy; to quit your job 
and hit the road like Kerouac. Nothing to tie you down. No responsi- 
bilities. Total freedom. A permanent vacation on the open road to 
adventure. Between these two poles lies the reality of life on the 
street." 

Within the pages of this book you'll find chapters on: 

• an overview of street life 

• three things you must have 

• where to sleep — - and where not to 

• how to deal with the cold and rain 

• the 22 types of street people 

• the cops 

• how to find a stable "homeless home" 

• the merchants 

• the homeless activists 

• food: eating for free 

• making money on the street 

• coping with "crazy" street people 

• drugs and alcohol 

• how to keep clean and stay healthy 

• violence: how to avoid it and what to do when you can't 

• getting off the streets 

• and tales of counterculture casualties. 

Ace himself admits that no book can teach you to survive the 
countless turbulent pitfalls awaiting you on the street, for each street 
person's situation is unique and individual. However, this book offers 
specific tips on street survival that worked and some that didn't, which 
might be just as valuable for those who could learn from Ace's mis- 
takes. For those of us who will never live on the streets, this book 
gives a brutally honest peek into an alien world from the eyes of a 
native. Fascinating!

ALTERNATIVE HOUSEBUILDING 
by Mike McClintock 

A giant, oversized, one-vol- 
ume working encyclopedia! Why 
are so many craftsmen turning 
to alternative housing instead of 
conventional home designs? 
Mike McClintock thinks it is 
because you get to "build some- 
thing personal and something 
special, and enjoy the trip as 
much as the destination." 

This book is your guide 
through the world of alternative 
house construction. It shows 
how to build with traditional sys- 
tems now enjoying big revivals: 
log buildings, timber frame 
houses, structures made from 
adobe, stone or cordwood. And 
you also see how to build with 
the newer systems: pole foundations, rammed-earth walls, earth shel- 
tering. But this is much more than a look-and-dream book. You get 
complete information on the construction techniques, with hundreds 
of step-by-step photos and drawings. Contents include: • Log Build- 
ings • Timber Frame • Pole • Cordwood, Stone, Earth Masonry • Earth 
Shelter. 

If you are looking for alternatives to mass-produced housing, this 
is the most complete and authoritative guide in print.

HOW TO BUILD 

A LOW-COST HOUSE OF STONE 

by Lewis and Sharon Watson 

Build a full-size 3-bedroom home for $2000? By yourself? With no 
experience? In one summer? The authors of this book did, and in it 
they show you how you can build your own low-cost house of stone. 

Until recently, stone masonry skills have been the guarded 
province of a handful of professional masons. With the simple forming 
technique explained in this book, however, an amateur builder can 
now "pour" his own stone house — in one summer, with no previous 
masonry experience, and at a cost that will have mortgage bankers 
shaking their heads in disbelief. 

How to Build a Low-Cost House of Stone clearly explains: • 
Where to find free stones • Which stones to use and why • How to site 
a stone house • How to pour stone wall footings • How to build simple 
wall forms • Building arrow-straight walls with forms • How to set win- 
dows and doors in stone • Working with stone mortar and concrete • 
Water-proofing stone walls • Insulating stone walls • And much, much 
more!

HOW TO BUILD AND FURNISH A LOG CABIN 
the Easy Natural Way Using Only Hand Tools . 
and the Woods Around You 
byW. Ben Hunt 

This is the only step-by-step guide to building log cabins and log 
furniture — pioneer style. There are other manuals on building cab- 
ins, but W. Ben Hunt's is the only one to show you how to build and 
furnish an authentic pioneer cabin — the easy, natural way, using 
only hand tools and the woods around you. 

Our forefathers used logs and hand tools to build durable, dry, 
windproof, and protective dwellings; and they fashioned chairs, tables 
and beds out of split half-logs, twigs, branches, and bushes. In this 
day of power saws, lumber yards, and high prices, it's good to know 
that you can build in the same way. 

If you're not ready to build an entire cabin, you can try your hand 
at some of the small furnishings such as lamps, fences, and candle- 
sticks. There are really two books in one here: Building a Log Cabin, 
published in 1947, and Rustic Construction, published in 1939. These 
two out-of-print classics have been reproduced exactly as they first 
appeared, with the drawings and photographs that W. Ben Hunt 
selected and produced for the original editions. 
Contents include: 

• The Cabin and the Site • Logs and Other Materials • 
Tools • Foundations and Fireplaces • Walls • Roofs • 
Windows, Doors, and Shutters • Floors, Stairs, and 
Ceilings • Partitions, Additions, and Porches • Fixtures 
and Fireplace Equipment • Lighting and Heating • 
Reconditioning Old Log Cabins • Outdoor Fireplaces • 
Slab Furniture • Interior Fixtures and Equipment • 
Fences and Gates • Bridges • And more.

EARTHSHIP: VOLUME I 

How to Build Your Own 

by Michael Reynolds 

Can you build your own home 
out of discarded automobile tires? 
Hell, yes! says architect Michael 
Reynolds, who shows in Earth- 
ship how to produce an economi- 
cally built, self-heating, 
self-cooling unit that performs 
even in the weather extremes of 
the Rocky Mountains. The author 
says, "We are in need of life sup- 
porting systems that will 'float' 

independently without access to various archaic self-destructive sys- 
tems upon which we have grown dependent. These systems include 
centralized energy systems which give us acid rain, radioactive waste 
and power lines lacing the earth like spider webs. We have heating 
and cooling systems for our living spaces that totally depend upon 
these centralized energy systems. 

"Most housing today would be totally nonfunctional in terms of 
comfort, water, toilets, electricity, etc., without massive inputs of 
energy from centralized sources. There is also food, another basic liv- 
ing need, which also comes mostly from centralized production sys- 
tems. The quality of this food is, at best, questionable, and it requires 
energy-consuming transportation systems for distribution. All of this is 
available only through money, which itself is another system between 
us and our sustenance. Due to the fact that these systems have 
evolved within a certain narrowness of vision, they have begun to 
reach points where they do more harm than good. 

"We need to evolve self-sufficient living units that are their own 
systems. These units must energize themselves, heat and cool them- 
selves, grow food and deal with their own waste. The current concept 
of housing, in general, supported by massive centralized systems, is 
no longer appropriate, safe or reliable."

EARTHSHIP: VOLUME II 

System and Components 

by Michael Reynolds 

In Earthship, Volume I Michael Reynolds showed you how to build 
your own house out of discarded automobile tires. In Volume II, he 
covers the systems (solar electric, domestic water, waste water, hot 
water, and lighting) and components (adobe fireplaces, stairways, 
gravity skylights, doors and cabinets, bathtubs, showers and vanities, 
can domes and vaults) of the Earthship home. He also discusses 
landscaping and codes, permits, and financing. 

The author says, "If our lifestyle can conform more to the patterns 
of the planet than to our socioeconomic system, we can reduce the 
stress on both ourselves and the planet. This is easier said than done 
due to the 'reality' and the 'gravity' of mortgage payments, utility bills 
and the generally high cost of eating and living. Most of us have no 
choice. We have to be places at certain times looking certain ways in 
order to make the money needed to make those payments. However, 
many people have built Earthships themselves and ended up with lit- 
tle or no mortgage payments. They also have little or no utility bills 
and their ability to grow food year-round inside the Earthship has 
greatly affected what they have to spend on packaged, processed 
foods. 

'This is approaching the freedom this country was founded on. I 
do not think we are a hostile, aggressive virus on this planet. We have 
simply built a trap and now we are caught in it. Our efforts to survive 
in this trap make us appear ruthless, hostile and aggressive. The 
Earthship and the Earthship concepts can begin to free us from this 
trap. Then we will have the mental space to make choices." 

We highly recommend Michael Reynolds' Earthship series to 
anyone interested in alternative housing, energy, and lifestyles.

EARTHSHIP: VOLUME III 

Evolution Beyond Economics 

by Michael Reynolds 

Earthship: Volume III continues the visionary and practical 
designs and ideas Michael Reynolds outlined in the first two volumes. 
The Earthship is an independent home that provides the necessities 
for human existence: shelter, energy, food, water and air. Volume III 
covers structural evolutions such as concrete half blocks and rammed 
earth half blocks, leaning tire retaining walls and wing walls, round 
and arch windows, and more. Also covered are mechanical evolu- 
tions such as the water organizer module, power organizer module, 
and the indoor contained grey water absorbing tank. 

Volume III also goes into new components and concepts such as 
the thermal mass refrigerator, the solar toilet, the straw bale tempo- 
rary structure, and more. 

Michael Reynolds says, "Politics, economics, and religion all pres- 
ent shallow solutions to a confused, disenchanted global populace. 
Politicians promise jobs. Economists analyze markets and play 
games. Meanwhile people are jobless, homeless, starving and dying, 
or if they are lucky, just unhappy and apathetic. 

"Why make jobs? Why should our lives depend so much on a 
thing called the economy? Even religions which were founded on a 
spark of inspiration have now become dogmatic institutions that func- 
tion with money. The all-encompassing economic dinosaur is too 
large to be changed or significantly influenced by anybody or anything 
and doesn't even notice the people it is supposed to serve. It eats 
everything in its path and then leaves excrement so physically and 
emotionally vile to both people and planet that life itself is beginning to 
look questionable. What if we slowly abandoned this dinosaur?"

BUILDING WITH EARTH 

A Guide to Flexible-Form Earthbag Construction 

by Paulina Wojclechowska 

Building With Earth is the 

first comprehensive guide to 
describe the re-emergence of 
earthen architecture in North 
America, where adventurous 
builders are combining time- 
less forms such as arches, 
vaults, and domes with mod- 
ern materials and techniques. 
Using inexpensive, recycled or 
salvaged polypropylene tubing 
or textile grain sacks, even rel- 
atively inexperienced builders 
can construct an essentially 
tree-free building, from founda- 
tion to curved roof. 

This book will take you 
"back to the future" of natural 

building, which lies in the merger of ancient architectures with cutting- 
edge earth-based techniques now being researched for their potential 
in building durable dwellings in the Third World, off-the-grid dream 
homes in exotic locales, and even structures on the moon! You'll learn 
how to: • Design and build rounded forms, including arches, vaults, 
domes, and apses, using inexpensive and locally available materials 
and tools • Build without relying on wood • Create and apply durable 
natural plaster finishes •Combine Earthbags with conventional and 
ecological building techniques • And much more. 

Author Paulina Wojciechowska's nonprofit trust "Earth, Hands & 
Houses" supports building projects that empower indigenous people 
around the world to build their own shelter from natural materials that 
are locally available.

BUILDING A LOG CABIN RETREAT 

A Do-It- Yourself Guide 

by Michael Mulligan 

If you've ever dreamed of building a 
rustic log cabin to use as a weekend 
hideaway, hunting lodge, or even an 
emergency retreat, this book tells you 
how to make it a reality. Author Michael 
Mulligan has built scores of log cabins 
over the past three decades, and this 
step-by-step guide is chock-full of tips 
and advice culled from his years of expe- 
rience. 

Specializing in do-it-yourself projects 
that use improvised materials and avoid 
bureaucratic hassles, Mulligan begins by 
sharing invaluable insight on finding the 
right piece of land and negotiating the 
shark-filled waters of real estate deals. 
And then the real fun begins. In, straight- 
forward layman's terms that even a novice can understand and follow 
easily, Mulligan walks you through the construction process, from 
selecting and preparing the logs and laying out the foundation to fab- 
ricating boxes for windows and doors and erecting and chinking the 
walls to building a roof and finishing the interior of the structure. In 
keeping with the goal of making your cabin a self-sufficient retreat 
suitable for use in a survival situation, he also includes a chapter on 
dispensing with public utilities in meeting your water, sewage, heat- 
ing, cooking, lighting, power, and refrigeration needs. Finally, for the 
ambitious builder who wishes to tackle a scaled-up version of Mulli- 
gan's basic design, he presents the formulas necessary for calculat- 
ing the parameters and selecting the proper material. 

Even in today's high-tech world, the early American pioneer tradi- 
tion of log cabin living has remained strong. Now, as we face an 
uncertain future wherein the bizarre and unanticipated are a matter of 
course, and "homeland security" no longer is, the back-to-basics sim- 
plicity of a log cabin retreat is more attractive than ever.

THE COB BUILDERS HANDBOOK 

You Can Hand-Sculpt Your Own Home 

by Becky Bee 

Cobbing is a process best 
described, as mud daubing. ' 
Earth, sand and straw.; are 
mixed together and massaged 
onto the foundation of the struc- 
ture to be cobbed, creating 
thick, load-bearing wails. Cob- 
bing is like hand-sculpting a 
giant pot to live in. 

There is evidence that cob 
building began in Europe about 
800 years ago. In England, 
there are approximately 50,000 
cob buildings still in. use today, 
most of which vyere constructed 
in the 18th and 19th centuries. 
After the advent of fired brick 
construction and. the formation 
of building guilds, the skill and art of cobbing alrrjost died out in 
Europe over the last century. Since 1980, this traditional craft has 
enjoyed a revival. Now, by reading The Cob Builders Handbook and 
following its simple instructions, you can make use of this fun, enlight- 
ening way to connect with nature while building valuable structures ; 
that will enhance your life! 

A well-designed cob home can cost as little as $10 per square 
foot, and save lots of money on energy bills. And anyone can work 
with cob. It is a flexible and forgiving medium, which requires dedica- 
tion more than physical strength, and a willingness to experiment 
rather than a high level of skill. Cob homes can last for centuries, and 
don't require much maintenance. • ; •?? ;a 

Becky Bee, author of The Cob Builders Handbook, has built nat- 
ural structures in countries around the world. Her company, Ground- 
works, is at the forefront of the cob revival. Read this book now, and 
discover a new world of cob construction that incorporates hands-on 
artistic expression with practical frugality.

MORTGAGE-FREE! 
Radical Strategies for Home Ownership 

by Rob Roy y 

Here is a banker's worst nightmare, a book that tells you how to ; 
live without being enslaved to financial institutions. Rob Roy offers a ; 
series of escape routes from indentured servitude, underscored by 
true stories of intrepid homeowners who have put their principles into -; 
action. There are three types of people who live without mortgages: 
the rich, the poor, and X^\e smart. Rob Roy's book will make you : 
smarter and richer. :• 

For many Americans, the word mortgage-free takes on a dreamy • 
quality, and suggests the completion of a twenty-five or thirty-year 
economic trial, or, perhaps, winning the state lottery. Among the, very ; 
rich, and paradoxically, many of the rural poor, the mortgage-free 
home is the status quo. Only the vast middle class seems to suffer 
from the mortgage manacle. Housing costs, whether by way of rent or 
mortgage, are the single largest after-tax expenditure for most Ameri- 
cans. It needn't be that way. Housing costs can be drastically 
reduced. Rental housing should only be consideredas a short-term ?■ 
necessity in situations, for example, where an individual, couple, or 
family has just moved to a new area, and has not yet found ownership 
possibilities. 

Chapters include: *The Mortgaged Home • The Grubstake • The _ 
Land • The Temporary Shelter • The Low-Cost.Home ♦ Our Own Story ] 
• Mortgage-Free People • and much more. >

BUILDING TIPIS & YURTS 

Authentic Designs for Circular Shelters 

by Blue Evening Star 

Tipis and yurts are extremely 
efficient shelters, even by today's 
standards. Many principles used 
in modern homes have their ori- 
gins in these primitive dwellings. 
Reflection of the sun during sum- 
mer, absorption of available heat 
in winter, blocking the force of the 
wind, and providing ventilation for 
fresh air and cooling have been 
— and continue to be — impor- 
tant challenges for home builders. 
Many innovative solutions to 
these problems are exemplified in 
the simple engineering of tipis 
and yurts. Compared to today's 
standard housing, tipis and yurts 
are extremely economical and easy to build — and are portable. With 
just a few basic tools and some readily available materials, anyone 
can build either structure. And when you've finished the construction, 
there's nothing that matches the joy of sitting within the embrace of 
your own circular shelter. 

If you've ever considered changing your lifestyle, or if you just 
want a unique portable shelter for outdoor camping, then this book is 
for you. In it you'll find clear instructions and easy-to-follow diagrams 
describing how to construct a tipi similar to those inhabited by Ameri- 
can Plains Indians and a yurt derived from the traditional Mongolian 
design.

THE RAMMED EARTH HOUSE 

Discovering the Most Ancient Building Material 

by David Easton 

For more than ten thou- 
sand years humans have 
been using earth as a primary 
building material. Rammed 
earth, as practiced today, 
involves mixing basic materi- 
als on-site — earth, water, 
and a little cement — then 
tamping the mixture into 
wooden forms to create thick, 
sturdy masonry walls. This 
method of building creates a 
structure of timeless beauty 
and Old World charm, a 
home that offers its inhabi- 
tants a powerful sense of 
security and well-being. 
Earthbuilt homes have a per- 
manence and solidity alto- 
gether lacking in so many of today's modular, pre-fab, stick-built 
houses. Rammed earth houses have other advantages/too, includ- 
ing: • Resource efficiency. A well-built earth house will last hundreds 
of years, which means that the natural materials needed for construc- 
tion are used wisely and sustainably. • Energy efficiency. Massive 
earth masonry walls retain solar heat in winter and cooler nighttime 
temperatures in summer, making rammed earth homes both comfort- 
able and economical year-round. • Design flexibility and aesthetics. 
Rammed earth walls allow for beautiful interior detailing. • Site-spe- 
cific qualities. A rammed earth home is made of materials indigenous 
to the site and is appropriate for every part of the United States. 

The Rammed Earth House offers clear and complete information 
for owner-builders, contractors, architects, and anyone interested in 
housing innovations that put into practice the philosophy of sustain- 
ability. Author David Easton is an experienced designer and builder of 
homes and commercial buildings, and one of the world's leading 
authorities on rammed earth construction.

HOME TREE HOME 

Principles of Treehouse Construction 

and Other Tall Tales 

by Peter Nelson and Gerry Hadden 

Remember the view from 
atop a tree? You could sur- 
vey the landscape like a 
monarch, escape your par- 
ents' watchful eye, and let 
your imagination run wild. 
Well, just because you've 
grown up, it doesn't mean 
you can't enjoy the sense of 
liberation a tree provides. 
Here is the most compre- 
hensive guide ever to build- 
ing your own castle in the 
air, be it a simple child's 
playhouse or an adult's cozy 
retreat with all the modern 
conveniences, including 
electricity. 

Peter Nelson, the 
nation's foremost authority on treehouses, tells you everything you 
need to know about designing and building the house that's right for 
you and your family. He gives you information on site selection (why 
some trees provide better homes than others), safety issues, tree 
care, advice on styles and materials, and other essential rules of 
thumb that will save time and money. 

Nelson walks you through the construction of four actual projects: 
a children's playhouse, a vacation home, an office, and a full-time res- 
idence. Whether you'd like to build your children a safe and fun place 
to play and dream, or you're contemplating your own retreat from the 
drudgeries of earthbound living, this practical, wildly fanciful guide will 
show you how to make your tree fantasies come true.

THE PASSIVE SOLAR HOUSE 

Using Solar Design to Heat 

and Cool Your Home 

by James Kachadorian 

What could be more reliable than the sun? The use of solar 
energy to heat and cool dwellings predates recorded history. Yet in 
recent years, decisions about design and materials for the home have 
been made as if there were an endless supply of fossil fuels. Not only 
have we forgotten about classic design principles, but we've lost 
countless opportunities to continue the age-old process of solar inno- 
vation. 

When our national fossil-fuel supplies were disrupted in the early 
1970s, it became extra important to reinvigorate solar design's 
methodology. Entrepreneurs and inventors launched any number of 
businesses to supply the public demand for solar homes, in some 
cases building odd-looking, uncomfortable glass boxes. 

This book offers a technique for building homes that heat and cool 
themselves in a wide range of different climates, using ordinary build- 
ing materials available anywhere and with methods familiar to all 
building contractors and do-it-yourselfers. 

A formerly patented design for author James Kachadorian's Solar 
Slab heat exchanger is now available for the use of anyone motivated 
by the desire to build a house that rarely, if ever, needs a backup fur- 
nace or air conditioner. 

Whether you're a young person dreaming of a first home, or an 
older person imagining a comfortable and easy to maintain (and 
resell) retirement home, The Passive Solar House will be your key to 
the home of a lifetime.

INTRODUCTION 

Lawyers, in their various incarnations as attorneys, judges 
and legislators, have got our legal system all screwed up, but in 
spite of that, there is an amazing amount of legal work that the 
average citizen can do himself. Not only will he save money, 
but often he will do a better job than a "professional" lawyer. 
These areas are covered in this Section. Contracts, lawsuits, 
bankruptcies, Small Claims court, and more — how-to-do-it 
guides for everyone! Even if you don't do your own legal work, 
you can use these books to check up on your lawyer! 



EVERYBODY'S GUIDE 

TO SMALL CLAIMS COURT 

8th Edition 

by Ralph Warner 

A difficult legal problem is a disaster for most people. Lawyers are 
expensive and untrustworthy. Court procedures and language are dif- 
ficult to understand and often frightening. The person with the legal 
problem (the client) is commonly denied the right to participate in his 
or her own dispute, except to pay and pay and pay. 

In the midst of this unhappy picture there are several rays of light. 
One is Small Claims Court — a place where decisions are made 
cheaply, quickly and with the participation of the disputing parties. In 
this book Ralph Warner shows you how to use Small Claims Court to 
your best advantage. With the information given here and your own 
creativity and determination, there is much that you can do to liberate 
yourself from the oppression of lawyers, judges, and our established 
court system. 

Subjects covered include: legal jargon; breach of contract cases; 
personal injury cases; stating your claim on your court papers; statute 
of limitations; how to settle your dispute; participation by attorneys; 
landlord-tenant cases; judgment and appeal; and much, much more. 

This is the most complete guide to small claims court ever written. 
Highly recommended.

BEAT THE BILL COLLECTOR 

How to Obtain Freedom from Your Debt 

by Max Edison 

If you are currently in debt or 
think you may be someday, you 
had better be aware of the 
dreaded debt collection agency. 
Collection agencies make it 
their business to hunt you down 
at work or at home and hound 
you until you promise to pay all 
of the money you owe, even if 
you can't afford to! It can be a 
humiliating and stressful experi- 
ence... but it doesn't have to be. 

In Beat the Bill Collector: 
How to Obtain Freedom from 
Your Debt, former bill collector 
Max Edison reveals what goes 
on behind closed doors at col- 
lection agencies, what makes 
the typical bullying bill collector 
tick, and the secret tactics and 
outright lies he'll employ to get 
you to pay up. More importantly, 

Edison tells you exactly how you can fight back with only one simple 
sentence, utilize an array of tricks which will put you beyond the reach 
of these financial snoops, or lay down a heavy barrage of legal fire- 
power if they persist in harassing you and your family. 

Know your rights! Know the facts! And shut those pocket-picking 

predators out of your life for good! Read this book now, and learn how 

to defy and defeat the bill collectors of the world.

THE HOME TOWN ADVANTAGE 

How to Defend Your Main Street Against Chain 

Stores... and Why It Matters 

by Stacy Mitchell 

A Wal-Mart "supercenter" arrives. A 
neighborhood pharmacy fails. Across 
the U.S., cities and towns are grappling 
with the proliferation of chain stores 
and the loss of locally owned busi- 
nesses. It is time to change the rules. 
From local zoning ordinances to fed- 
eral antitrust policy, The Home Town 
Advantage provides a comprehensive 
guide to reviving the homegrown econ- 
omy. 

Chapters include: • Trends are 

Not Destiny • The Retail Sector 

Consolidates • The Benefits of 

Local Ownership • Reviving 

Antitrust • Planning and Zoning 

for Healthy Main Streets • Tax- 
ing Chain Stores • Restoring Franchise Autonomy • 

Expanding Cooperatives • And more. 
"Anyone concerned about the preservation of locally owned small 
businesses in America should read The Home Town Advantage. So 
should those who lament the conversion of the American landscape 
into blobs of sprawl. This concise, readable report is a real eye- 
opener in explaining how public policies often favor absentee-owned 
businesses over the local businesses that contribute so significantly 
to a community's civic life and distinctive character. Most important, 
the report describes planning, zoning, and other strategies that Main 
Street preservationists can use to enhance the quality of their towns."

THE OUTLAW'S BIBLE 

How to Evade the System 

Using Constitutional Strategy 

by E.X. Boozhie 

This extraordinary book brings together the merits of experience 
and sound legal scholarship, for an approach to the law that nobody 
else has dared to present — the perspective of the citizen-law- 
breaker. 

While there is no such thing as complete security for someone 
who chooses to disobey the government, there is a zone of protection 
in which one can expect both privacy and a lower burden of punish- 
ment if one is caught. The Establishment doesn't want us to know 
precisely where this zone is, or how to take advantage of it, because 
that would greatly diminish its level of control. That's why this impor- 
tant information never appears in the media, the standard literature, 
or the teachings of Establishment institutions. 

The Outlaw's Bible is not just a book for lawbreakers. It is for all 
people who undertake to seriously learn about the legal rights sup- 
posedly available under the U.S. Constitution. The average person 
never thinks about rights and legalities. It is strange that there are 
absolutely no basic studies of law in any public school, yet the Law 
Library of Congress contains an amazing seven million books on law 
alone! You simply can't get through a day without breaking some law 
or other. 

As you read this excellent book, remember that someday, some- 
how, you may need to hide from the police or avoid prosecution. This 
book contains the only non-violent weapon you can arm yourself with. 
Use it; take it very seriously. If you break laws for pleasure, profit, or 
principle, you need The Outlaw's Bible: How to Evade the System 
Using Constitutional Strategy.

We've all received 
one: a traffic ticket that

back with this new guide- 
book. Beat Your Ticket 
simply and clearly lays

for beating tickets in 
court. The book explains 
in plain English how to 
use the law to fight an 
unwarranted ticket, find 
out what the police offi- 
cer plans to say at your

your case and cross-examine the ticketing officer. It also discusses 
plea-bargaining, traffic school, license suspensions and much more. 
Packed with step-by-step instructions, tips and encouragement, 
Beat Your Ticket covers a truck-load of moving violations, including: • 
speeding • illegal turns • running red lights • ignoring stop signs • tail- 
gating • unsafe lane changes. The book also has a unique 50-state

and don'ts," so that you can tailor a winning defense and make your

THE CRIMINAL DEFENDANT'S BIBLE 
by Michael H. Brown 

Michael Brown says: The time to learn to use a firearm is not in 
the middle of a gunfight. The time to learn how to navigate through a 
swamp is not while a water moccasin is biting you in the butt. The 
time to learn how to defend yourself from a completely corrupt crimi- 
nal justice system is not after you have been arrested, tried, convicted 
and imprisoned. ... Make no mistake about it. The American criminal 
justice system is a swamp. It doesn't take above-average intelligence 
to recognize, once it has been pointed out to you, that the American 
criminal justice system benefits only those who administer it: judges, 
prosecutors, lawyers, law enforcement, and zoo keepers (prison 
guards). By sometime very early in the next century our prison popu- 
lation will exceed two million. By the middle of the twenty-first century, 
at present rates of incarceration, there will be only two classes of peo- 
ple in the United States: guards and prisoners. In the meantime, if you 
prefer to stay 'on the street,' you're going to need to read, study, and 
be ready to apply the contents of this book." 

Mike Brown has created a true "Bible," which will teach you how 
the criminal justice system really works and what you have to do to 
represent yourself. It teaches you how to fight back on paper and win! 
This book is filled with details that cover every aspect of criminal legal 
proceedings and provides exhibits of actual motions and filings that 
are necessary for a successful defense. This book is a masterpiece 
that will prove invaluable in your quest for freedom and peace of 
mind.

Edited by Barry Hoffman 



GAUNTLET 



Those wild-minded folks 
at Gauntlet are at it again, 
this time exploring the 
seductively dangerous 
world of S/M. And it's not 
just for breakfast anymore! 
The S/M image has 
weaseled its way out of 
dank basements into subur- 
ban living rooms, embraced 
by mainstream media and 
fashionable yuppies. This 
issue contains first-hand 
accounts from those in the 
business of sexual pain and 
pleasure. Charlie Latour, 
the Diva of Porn, explains 
the world of the S/M under- 
ground. You'll go S/M club 
hopping with Pearl Chavez, 
and see the S/M culture 
through the lens of Charles 
Gatewood, "Photographer 
of the Forbidden." 

Readers are treated to an interview with George Carlin and an 
excerpt on politically correct language from his book, Braindroppings. 
Emily Alward depicts how Female erotica wriggled through the thin 
line between romance novels and raunchy skin mags, while Bobby 
Lilly smears the division between erotica and pom. Peter Huston 
gives an update on the Hit Man case, and porn star William Margold 
wonders what the BIG deal was about Boogie Nights. 

Gauntlet, a dominant force in the free-speech arena, isn't bound 
by convention. We know you'll find this issue very pleasurable. Or 
painful. Whichever you prefer.

HARMFUL TO MINORS 

The Perils of Protecting Children from Sex 

by Judith Levine 

Condemned by reactionaries as promoting pedophilia, Harmful to 
Minors is a controversial and badly needed book. Sex is a wonderful, 
crucial part of growing up, and children and teens can enjoy the 
pleasures of the body and be safe, too. In this important book, Judith 
Levine makes this argument and goes further, asserting that Amer- 
ica's attempts to protect children from sex are worse than ineffectual. 
It is the assumption of danger and the exclusive focus on protection 
— what Levine terms "the sexual politics of fear" — that are them- 
selves harmful to minors. 

Through interviews with young people and their parents, stories 
drawn from today's headlines, visits to classrooms and clinics, and a 
look back at the way sex among children and teenagers has been 
viewed throughout history, Levine debunks some of the dominant 
myths of our society. She examines and challenges widespread anxi- 
eties (pedophilia, stranger kidnapping, Internet pornography) and 
sacred cows (abstinence-based sex education, statutory rape iaws). 
Levine investigates the policies and practices that affect kids' sex 
lives — censorship, psychology, sex and AIDS education, family, 
criminal, and reproductive law, and the journalism that begs for "solu- 
tions" while inciting more fear. 

Levine provides optimistic, though realistic, prescriptions for how 
we might do better in guiding children toward loving well — that is, 
safely, pleasurably, and with respect for others and themselves. 
Harmful to Minors should be read by everyone who is interested in 
the myths and taboos that lurk behind the curtain of mass media real- 
ity. 

"A much needed contribution to the discussion about children's 
sexuality, adult fears and irrationality about it, and the moral, political, 
and public health risks of failing to confront anxiety and ignorance 
about children's erotic desires and needs. Levine makes a compelling 
case that respecting and celebrating such desires and needs are 
essential to this country's historic project of promoting We, liberty, and 
the pursuit of happiness' for everyone who lives here — including 
those under 18. . . An exceptionally smart and readable book." 

— Debbie Nathan, coauthor of Satan's Silence; Ritual Abuse and 
The Making of a Modern American Witch Hunt 

"Sharp, extraordinarily informed, and wittily incisive... This is a 
major book, far and away the most wide-ranging, well informed, and 
judicious we have on the subject. Levine's wisdom is compelling, and 
she offers the best kind of sophisticated and skeptical analysis. It's a 
crusading book that is also kind, a very rare phenomenon, and it 
comes down always on the side of trusting not only our kids and their 
pleasures but our own."

Child Molesting

MAXIMIZE YOUR VITALITY AND POTENCY 

For Men Over 40 

by Jonathan V. Wright, M.D. 

and Lane Lenard, Ph.D. 

Forget about Viagra®... Never mind Proscar®... Natural Testos- 
terone is the F eal Thing! 

Natural Testosterone and other natural remedies have been sci- 
entifically shown to enhance sexuality, vitality, cardiovascular health, 
and general h salth. These treatments work better than Viagra® and 
Proscar® and have fewer side effects. If a man has other symptoms 
of male menopause, 'such as depression, insomnia, progressively 
wasting muse es and bones, rising blood cholesterol levels, and an 
expanding waistline, Viagra® won't do him any good. If his prostate is 
growing larger or if his heart and blood vessels are beginning to show 
signs of atheiosclerotic disease, Viagra® won't help a bit. In fact, 
depending on what other drugs he may be taking to treat these other 
manifestation* of the male menopause syndrome, he may not even 
be able to takd Viagra®. 

This book eveals better, safer, more natural ways to restore sex- 
ual function w thout expensive or dangerous drugs by correcting the 
underlying ce uses of male menopause. This book demonstrates 
repeatedly ths.t scientific research, clinical experience, and ordinary 
common sense confirm that sexual dysfunction as well as virtually all 
the other syrrptoms of male menopause can be traced, at least in 
part, to an ace-related decline in testosterone. Replacing testos- 
terone with natural testosterone (not some other preparation mas- 
querading as "testosterone"), as well as replacing other natural 
hormones wh m needed, and adding various nutritional, herbal, and 
botanical pro iucts, can be at least as effective, is almost always 
safer, and invariably costs less than conventional pharmaceutical 
solutions.

BEST CAT HOUSES IN NEVADA 

Everything You Want to Know About 

Legal Prostitution in Nevada 

by J.R. Schwartz 

Today, prostitution is a thriving, 
spirited, legal business in Nevada, 
with 36 licensed cat houses operating 
throughout the state. They stretch 
from Me outskirts of Reno and Carson 
City, east to Fallon on Highway 50, to 
Wells on Interstate 80, south to the 
outskirts of Las Vegas, and north on 
Highway 95, through the deserts and 
into the mountains. 

The cat houses have such exotic 
names as The Chicken Ranch, The 
Cottontail, The Cherry Patch, Kitty's 
Guest Ranch, Mustang, and the New 
Sagebrush Guest Ranch. Some 
houses are as small as two room 
shacks, others as big as hotels. The 
women that work in them run the spec- 
trum of age, race, color, and religious preference. Many are extremely 
religious; others denounced the Bible a long time ago. 

This unusual book discusses all the legal houses of prostitution in 
Nevada today, giving the exact location, description of facilities, 
prices, and special services offered. Fascinating, clever, and well writ- 
ten — a unique and entertaining, as well as useful book.

TURNING PRO 

A Guide to Sex Work for the Ambitious 

and the Intrigued 

by Magdalene Meretrix 

From dance hall girls to happy 
hookers, the world has always been 
fascinated with sex workers. Now, a 
woman who's done almost every kind 
of sex work imaginable reveals the 
actual details of sex work: how to get 
a job, how to keep yourself safe, how 
much you can expect to make, how 
to plan your exit strategy, and more. 

From the Foreword by Carol 
Queen, Ed.D.: "The publication of this 
book is a radical act. Whores and 
exotic dancers, bar boys and porn 
performers, all of us are supposed to 
fall into sex work like we're falling off 
a cliff, because the circumstances of 
our lives send us tumbling down a 
slippery slope and we can't stop our- 
selves. We certainly aren't supposed to choose to do it because we 
think we'd be good at or enjoy it. Turning Pro represents a new level 
of legitimacy for sex workers — up until now we could pen apologia or 
memoirs, and more recently analyze the politics and power relations 
of our experience, but not invite others to join us in the sex trade. We 
certainly couldn't inform our new colleagues how to do it right. The 
vast knowledge base of sex workers has largely existed in the twi- 
light, inaccessible even to many of us."

CELTIC SEX MAGIC 

For Couples, Groups and Solitary Practitioners 

by Jon G. Hughes 

Generations of Celtic Druids — 

have harnessed their sexual 
energy to maximize the potency of 
their magic. Working alone, in 
pairs, or as a group, practitioners 
engage in the ritualized prepara- 
tion, focus, and release of the 
immense natural energy produced 
by orgasm in order to liberate their 
consciousness from everyday real- 
ity and potentize their spells. 

The first written account of this 
ancient path, from a practicing 
Druid with more than forty years in 
the tradition, Celtic Sex Magic 
teaches you how to channel, inten- 
sify, and project your sexual energy to access its full power and 
potential. Until now, the secrets of these Druidic practices have been 
passed down orally from generation to generation. The author himself 
received his knowledge from his grandfather and a Druidic priestess 
in the small village of the Welsh countryside where he grew up. 

Described here are the nine stages of the sex magic ritual — 
Awakening, Augmentation, Intensification, Quickening, Orgasm and 
Projection, Continuance, Relaxation, Scattering, and Gift. Also 
included are authentic, accurate and illustrated instructions for the 
steps of preparation and closure of each ritual as well as for crafting 
the necessary tools and potions that accompany the rites. And while 
the techniques presented are steeped in an age-old heritage, the 
author also addresses the contemporary concerns of health and 
safety. Illustrated throughout with more than seventy color images, 
Celtic Sex Magic offers unique and contemporary access to an 
ancient path of empowerment.

two most-mentioned female fantasy theme. Close your eyes and the

women can explain their fantasies to their lovers • How couples can 
convince female friends to join their sensual fantasies • and much,

THE ETHICAL SLUT 

A Guide to Infinite Sexual Possibilities 

by Dossie Easton and Catherine A. Liszt 

The authors say: "In most of 
the world, 'slut' is a highly offen- 
sive term, used to describe a 
woman whose sexuality is vora- 
cious, indiscriminate and shame- 
ful. It's interesting to note that the 
analogous word 'stud,' used to 
describe a highly sexual man, is 
often a term of approval and 
envy. If you ask about a man's 
morals, you will probably hear 
about his honesty, loyalty, 
integrity and high principles. 
When you ask about a woman's 
morals, you are more likely to 
hear about who she fucks and 
under what conditions. We have 
a problem with this. 

"So we are proud to reclaim 
the word 'slut' as a term of 
approval, even endearment. To us, a slut is a person of any gender 
who has the courage to lead life according to the radical proposition 
that sex is nice and pleasure is good for you. A slut may choose to 
have sex with herself only, or with the Fifth Fleet. He may be hetero- 
sexual, homosexual or bisexual, a radical activist or a peaceful subur- 
banite. 

"As proud sluts, we believe that sex and sexual love are funda- 
mental forces for good — activities with the potential to strengthen 
intimate bonds, enhance lives, create spiritual awareness, even 
change the world. And, furthermore, we believe that all consensual 
sexual choices have these potentials — that any sexual pathway, 
consciously chosen and mindfully followed, can be a positive, cre- 
ative force in the lives of individuals and their communities. 

"One of the most valuable things we can learn from open sexual 
lifestyles is that our programming is changeable. So, by breaking the 
rules, we both free and empower ourselves."

PANTIES DOWN! BEFORE MONEY DOWN! 

An Erotic Travel Guide to the Philippines 

by Mac Horn 

Follow travel writer Mac Horn to the Philippines, the islands of love 
and romance. Whether you're looking for a Filipina wife or just a 
romantic fling, Mac "The Asian Answer Man" Horn will teach you 
everything you need to know about travel and girl chasing in the 
Philippines. 

This book is written for informational and entertainment purposes 
only. It is not the intention of this book to promote or facilitate viola- 
tions of either US or Philippine laws. This book simply reports to the 
reader what to expect during his travels so he can have a safe and 
pleasant stay in the Philippines. Let it be known that although the 
author himself is not a Philippine citizen, he is a resident of the Philip- 
pines; he therefore writes this book out of love for the Philippine peo- 
ple, especially the women, of whom no other country can even come 
close in matching their sweetness, warmth, friendliness, playfulness, 
and overall beauty. 

Warning: American citizens or permanent residents should note 
that it is illegal to travel to other countries with the "intenf of engaging 
in sex with persons under the age of sixteen. Although this book may 
contain information regarding girls under sixteen years of age, this 
book should not be misinterpreted as promoting or advocating travel 
for such purposes. This book reports such information because it 
happens to be the truth and, for better or for worse, because females 
in most Asian cultures are considered mature enough to decide with 
whom they want to have sex (for love or money) by the age of 
puberty. This book and the author will not impose American moral 
standards on people in other countries, particularly given the fact that 
the age of consent in some states is as low as fourteen (e.g., Hawaii) 
and many Western countries also set the age of consent at or around 
the age of puberty. (Holland, for instance, has a "consent" clause 
which prevents the police from prosecuting adults who have sex with 
minors ages twelve to sixteen if there is no complaint from the minor 
or his/her guardian.) All girls appearing nude or partially naked in this 
book are 18 years of age or older. 

This guidebook includes travel to Manila, the sin city of Angeles, 
Subic, Cebu, La Union, Baguio, and Puerto Gallera. Maps, illustra- 
tions, and over 100 photos of naked Filipina girls! Adults only.

MASTURBATION MEMOIRS, VOL. I & II 

An erotic guide to women's self pleasuring 

(VHS Video) 

Produced by House O f Chicks 

This singularly erotic video compilation from House O' Chicks 
stands out (like the rest of their excellent video work) from run-of-the- 
mill "pornography" in a way that nearly transcends sexuality. The seg- 
ments featuring ousted U.S. Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders (to 
whom the tape is dedicated), who endorses masturbation as "nor- 
mal," serve to put the discussion and displays of female masturbation 
in the proper perspective. There is nothing shameful about masturba- 
tion for either sex, and this work extends sex education in a non- 
exploitive way and initiates a frank exploration of the meaning and 
message that this simple, natural act deserves, along with an inter- 
esting and informative dialogue. 

Setting out to show the "real face of American masturbation," and 
filmed in "Vulvascope," Masturbation Memoirs features six women 
who are very much in tune with their bodies and female natures: 
Annie Sprinkle, Juliet Carr, Dorrie Lane, Scarlot Harlot, Anna Marti, 
and Guadalupe San Francisco. These uninhibited performers cele- 
brate their feminine spirit, reminisce about their earliest masturbatory 
experiences, and passionately demonstrate their preferred tech- 
niques for self-gratification. 

Sprinkle is particularly endearing when she explains her penchant 
for "medibation," a combination of meditation and masturbation, and 
takes the viewer along on a steaming close-up adventure in mediba- 
tion that has never been shown on film before. 

This video compilation was made by women for women... and for 
men, too!

THE MAGIC OF FEMALE EJACULATION 

(VHS Video) 

Produced by House O'Chicks 

Female ejaculation! What is it? Where does it come from? This is 
a how-tovideo for women and theirlovers. Popular 20th century stud- 
ies, including the Kinsey Report and Masters & Johnson deny that 
women ejaculate, despite the fact that a number of their own subjects 
did, in fact, ejaculate during orgasm. Doctors Ernest Grafenburg (of 
G-Spot fame) and Robert L. Dickinson both reported that their female 
subjects ejaculated. 

The medical term for female ejaculation is Prostatic fluid. It does 
not look or smell like urine in any way. Most studies conclude that the 
fluid is produced by the paraurethral gland, which is surrounded by 
the urethral sponge. (An interesting note is that during fetal develop- 
ment, the urethral sponge in women becomes the prostate in men.) 

This short video covers references to female ejaculation in litera- 
ture and history, where exactly the fluid comes from, and what it is. 
Then, an attractive and comely young lady of the female sex mastur- 
bates on camera, climaxing with ejaculation. Fascinating!

HOW TO FIND YOUR G-SPOT 

(VHS Video) 

Produced by House O'Chicks 

From the makers of The Magic of Female Ejaculation comes their 
new video, How to Find Your G-Spot. Recognizing the need for 
explicit, informative and entertaining sex information, House O'Chicks 
once again recruited the very lovely and charming Dorrie Lane as star 
to explain, demonstrate and demystify the erogenous pleasure zones 
of a woman. 

How to Find Your G-Spot begins by introducing the Wondrous 
Vulva Puppet to explore step by step the erogenous zones of a 
woman's sexual anatomy. The Wondrous Vulva Puppet invokes a 
child's curiosity and playfulness. Dorrie Lane's interaction with the 
puppet brings back memories of Shari Lewis and Lambchop! House 
O'Chicks shows more ingenuity in the video with the introduction of 
Maps to the Wondrous Vulva — creative and humorous guides you 
won't see in any textbook. Here you find "points of interest" and 
advice from Dorrie on how to travel the many roads to a woman's 
orgasm. 

How to Find Your G-Spof concludes with live, instructional vulvas 
that show the changes that occur during arousal and the actual G- 
Spot that is exposed during ejaculation. Dorrie shares her own vulva 
with the audience and invites them to watch as she masturbates to an 
orgasm and ejaculation. Wheel

THE MULTI-ORGASMIC MAN 
Sexual Secrets Every Man Should know 
by Mantak Chia and Douglas Abrams Arava 



How Any- Mar, Can 



*s>«-?>*s*<:»< *auit*pit> 0*fjn;;m 



and Dramatically li-.hanzs 



Over three thousand 
years ago, the Chinese 
recognized that men have 
the capability of achieving 
multiple orgasms by 
delaying and even with- 
holding ejaculation, and 
that orgasm and ejacula- 
tion are two distinct physi- 
cal processes. The 
Multi-Orgasmic Man 
teaches the males of 
today how to separate 
those two processes in 
their own bodies, allowing 
them to transform the 
momentary release of 
ejaculation into countless 
peaks of whole-body 
orgasmsl It also explains 
how men can satisfy the 
multi-orgasmic potential 
of their sex partners. 

Women who read this 
book will learn secrets 
about male sexuality that are seldom revealed. Couples who study it 
together will find they can reach levels of sexual ecstasy and satisfac- 
tion that they never imagined possible. 

This book draws on both ancient Taoist practices and the most 
recent scientific discoveries to teach the reader how to separate 
orgasm from ejaculation, experience multiple orgasms, and improve 
one's overall health. It is a practical, straightforward guide to trans- 
forming male sexuality. So get on up! Be a modern-day sex machine! 
Read this book, and become multi-orgasmic now!

THE JOY OF SOLO SEX 
by Dr. Harold Litten 

Are you enamored of peeling your carrot? Spanking your spud? 
Squeezing your squab? These and countless other euphemisms refer 
to the act of masturbation, a procedure that virtually every human 
being engages in at one time or another. But this simple biological 
process is far too often cloaked in the dark shroud of shame and 
embarrassment, hidden away and shyly concealed. 

Until now, that is. Now, with Dr. Harold Litten's third edition of The 
Joy of Solo Sex in hand (leaving the other free), you can celebrate 
the carnal delights of creative onanism. In this fascinating book, the 
reader will discover realms of pertinent information regarding sex 
toys, self-love objects, and creative touching techniques. The Joy of 
Solo Sex provides a wealth of provocative information and ideas 
about masturbation that will greatly enhance this simple pleasure. 

Written for any and every man who would like to become a true 
connoisseur of sex, The Joy of Solo Sex helps the male of the 
species learn to focus the electro-chemical energy in his body in order 
to stimulate the parts of the brain which are involved with sexual 
response. Masturbation is an integral part of the human sexual expe- 
rience, and as such should be developed and explored, not ignored 
and repressed. The Joy of Solo Sex helps make this heightened 
state of awareness possible, and in doing so makes it possible for the 
practitioner of autoeroticism to reach new heights of sexual ecstasy.

SEXUAL SECRETS 

The Alchemy of Ecstasy 

Full-Color 20th Anniversary Edition 

by Nik Douglas and Penny Slinger 

With more than one million copies sold and translations in twenty 
languages, Sexual Secrets continues to be the definitive, all-encom- 
passing text on sacred sexuality. The distillation of more than two 
thousand years of practical techniques for enhancing sexual aware- 
ness and achieving the transcendental experience of unity, Sexual 
Secrets explores the path of love and mysticism, making accessible 
the sexual mysteries of the East. 

In India, Nepal, Tibet, China, and Japan, sexuality has long been 
regarded as both an art and a science worthy of detailed study and 
practice. Virtually unknown to the Western world, a vast and potent 
body of ancient sacred writings on sexuality exists. The secrets for 
consciously inducing and maximizing the experience of ecstasy have 
remained sealed in the ancient texts and art of The East. Sexual 
Secrets makes available the essential core of this vast literature on 
sexual wisdom in a vital and practical form. It is meant to be experi- 
enced as well as read, for it is the sharing of ecstatic love that unlocks 
the sexual secrets. 

The richest collection of erotic art ever assembledl More than six 
hundred color and black-and-white paintings and illustrations have 
been created and collected to enhance the experience of the text and 
to unfold these sacred mysteries. The illustrations and paintings in 
Sexual Secrets are the most comprehensive and diverse collection 
of images expressing the erotic sentiment ever assembled. Two hun- 
dred sexual postures are depicted, creating a complete illustrated 
Kama Sutra, Ananga Ranga, and the major Taoist love treatises. 
These works of art are unique in themselves and represent, as does 
the text, a gathering together of many streams, leading to the same 
source — the celebration of sacred sexuality. Sexual Secrets reveals 
the wisdom of the sages whose teachings on sexuality have stood the 
test of twenty centuries and, even today, show how physical love can 
become the pathway to liberation.

BROTHEL 

Mustang Ranch and Its Women 

by Alexa Albert 

When Harvard Medical School 
student Alexa Albert conducted a 
public-health study at the Mustang 
Ranch brothel in Nevada, the only 
state in America where prostitution 
is legal, neither she nor the women 
of the brothel could have predicted 
the result. Having worked with 
homeless prostitutes at a drop-in 
center in New York City's Times 
Square, Albert was intimate with 
the human devastation caused by 
the sex trade and curious to see if 
Nevada's brothels offered a less 
harmful model for a business that 
will always be with us. Mustang 
Ranch had never before let such 
an outsider in, but after three years 
of Albert's persistent urging, it 
finally relented and opened its 
doors to her. 

What Albert did not anticipate was that the women of the Mustang 
Ranch would be so hungry to confide in her, or that she would come 
to care about them so deeply. The prostitutes poured their stories out 
to Albert: how they came to be at Mustang Ranch, their surprisingly 
deep sense of craft and vocation, and how they reconciled their pro- 
fession with the attitudes of their families and the outside world. Con- 
sequently, what began as a public-health project evolved into 
something more personal and ambitious — a six-year study of the 
brothel and its women. Albert went as far into this world as it is possi- 
ble for an outsider to go (some will say too far), and the result is 
Brothel, a landmark work that puts a much-needed human face on 
America's most marginalized and misunderstood group of women.

THE GOVERNMENT VS. EROTICA 
The Seige of Adam & Eve 

by Philip D. Harvey 

Foreword by Nadlne Strossen, 

President, American Civil Liberties Union 

In 1986, a small mail-order 
company was invaded by 37 
armed law enforcement 
agents who instantly shut 
down all operations, herded 
the employees into a ware- 
house, and systematfcaily 
interrogated everyone, allow- 
ing them to leave only after 
subpoenas were distributed. 
Although this episode may 
sound like a police action in 
the former East Germany, it 
was in fact implemented by 
the US Department of Justice, 
then headed by Edwin 
Meese, against Adam & Eve, 
a North Carolina business 
that sells contraceptives, sex 
toys, and adult videos. Now, 
the company's owner, Phil 
Harvey, offers a firsthand 
account of this David-and-Goliath battle. The Government vs. Erot- 
ica goes to the heart of our national debate over First Amendment 
freedom of expression versus government attempts to limit the avail- 
ability of erotic materials. 

Harvey's personal memoir of an eight-year struggle — eventually 
victorious — against the strong-arm tactics of the Justice Department 
raises important questions about federal abuse of power, the slow 
erosion of First Amendment rights through government intimidation, 
the effects of pornography, the archaic laws that attempt to regulate 
sexuality between consenting adults, the class-war implications of 
this battle, and the relationship between sex and religion. The Gov- 
ernment vs. Erotica provides a detailed account of the inner work- 
ings of the legal process and of the feisty owners and managers of a 
small company determined to stand up for their rights. This controlled, 
yet suspenseful and humorous story is a wake-up call for all who 
would be complacent about their First Amendment rights.

Legal Prostitution for American Men 



THE $51 FANTASY 

Legal Prostitution for American Men 

by Eric S. Moore 

If you are interested in 
paying for some hot sex, in 
America your options are 
rather limited. Prostitution is 
illegal everywhere except for 
a few counties in Nevada, 
and even there, there are 
certain things money can't 
buy, such as kissing or anal 
sex. You could spend a for- 
tune on "Escort Services," 
without even being sure of 
what you are getting until 
after you have paid your 
hard-earned dough. You can 
risk fungus of the bungus by 
picking up street whores, and 
you might wind up in jail! 

Eric S. Moore has discov- 
ered a beautiful secret: the 
wonderful world of legal 
prostitution for American 
men. Hundreds of brothels 
are located within walking distance of the US border in the Mexican 
cities of Tijuana (near San Diego, California), Nogales (across the 
border from Nogales, Arizona), Juarez (across the border from El 
Paso, Texas), and Nuevo Laredo (across the border from Laredo, 
Texas). In fact, over 10% of US men live within a four-hour drive of 
one of these border towns in major southern cities such as Los Ange- 
les, San Diego, Phoenix, Tucson, Albuquerque, El Paso, Austin, San 
Antonio, Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth. Another amazing fact is that 
prostitution is closely regulated in Mexico. Legal prostitutes are 
required to register with the state and to undergo regular health 
screenings. 

This is a book which has been needed for years. The author says, 
"I would encourage you to give the legal brothels of Mexico a try. My 
exploring of this unique 'hobby' has resulted in memories (and a few 
photos) that I will never forget."

TIJUANA BIBLES: VOLUME 1 
America's Forgotten Comic Strips 



With an unabashed vim 
'n vigor that makes popular 
gossip rags like The Star 
and The National Enquirer 
seem limp by comparison, 
the underground smut-chain 
of racy eight-pagers, collec- 
tively consecrated Tijuana 
Bibles, has been spreading 
the "good news" about sex 
and celebrity to horny 
schoolboys, housewives, 
and dirty ole men of all ages 
from as far back as the wild 
and wily days of Prohibition! 
Taboo classics such as 
Tillie the Fire Woman," "Air 
Necking" and "Bellhop Kicks 
Dog" have been kept under 
wraps for decades — 
hoarded on bookshelves, 
slipped between mattresses, 
and furiously pawed on play- 
grounds and in men's rooms nationwide — as timelessly titillating 
today as they have been for generations of filth fanciers. Each saucy 
strip is an education in wit and wantonness, and you'll want to get to 
know every one of them a little better — in the biblical sense, of 
course!

TIJUANA BIBLES: VOLUME 3 
America's Forgotten Comic Strips 

Times may certainly 
change, but the quest for 
nookie reigns eternal, as 
powerfully attested to by 
the Tijuana Bibles— racy, 
raunchy strips dating from 
the early days of comics. 
Also known as "eight 
pagers," these bawdy 
tales more than made up 
for what they lacked in 
length with tons of upfront 
sex action and outrageous 
humor. Satirizing pop cul- 
ture icons — from famous 
movie actors of the time to 
comic strip legends like 
Superman, Batwoman, 
and Dagwood (to name a 
few!) — no thing or person 
was sacred to the anony- 
mous creators of these 
spicy short stories. Watch 
the fluids fly as Dick Tracy 
gets to the bottom of some "Official Business" — and see Charlie 
McCarthy learn "A Lesson in Love"! And you'll savor if not swoon over 
such riotous sex-romps as "Kum To Me My Melancholy Baby" and 
"Nerts to You" — and wait 'til you see "Miss Jones Takes a Letter" 
(and takes a whole lot more!). Plus twelve more stories that bump, 
grind, and sizzle with their timeless mix of brazen sex and belly- 
laughs! This collection of rare, if not impossible to find strips is a must 
for collectors of classic and erotic comics alike — and if you're not 
familiar with the Tijuana Bibles already, it's the perfect place to start!

Relive the bawdy days

twenty-five filthy funnies 
from the Torrid Twenties, 
Dirty Thirties, and beyond! 
Nothing's sacred in these 
bluntly pornographic 
satires, commonly known 
as "eight pagers" due to 
their "Wham-bam, thank 
you ma'am" delivery and 
naughty, .no-holes-barred 
approach. They may have 
come out in the Prohibi- 
tion Era, but there are cer- 
tainly NO inhibitions in 
these saucy stories, many 
involving stars of the silver 
screen and the funny 
pages. From salacious 
takes on the classic travel- 
ing salesman/delivery 
man story — "The Radio Salesman," "Roy the Sweeper Boy" and 
more (they service their clients in more ways than one!), to wildly 
irreverent glimpses at the private lives of Winston Churchill and Mae 
West, these stories more than make up for what they lack in length 
with tons of lewdness, lust, and laughs galore! And that's not all — the 
true forte of the form were their torrid treatments of cartoon charac- 
ters. From the amorous adventures of Flash Gordon, Orphan Annie, 
Olive Oyl, Popeye and more (including the rare, extra-length "Mae 
West and Popeye"), these tried and true blue tales will amaze and 
arouse fans of smut and classic comics alike!

probably crossed your mind more 
than once. 

"There are more good reasons

and budget. There are many ways to 
use the classified ads and, therefore, 
you should have no trouble reaching 
your objective of finding exactly the 
type of woman you desire. 

"I have tried to provide the information needed for any man to for- 
mulate easily a game plan based on his needs and desires, then exe- 
cute it without wasting time and money, by avoiding common 
mistakes. Life is much too short, and every man deserves to find the 
ideal woman to share one's life and fantasies." 

If you purchase this book, you too can find the woman of your 
dreams by learning: 

• Which are the worst possible words to use in your ad 

• Which words practically guarantee positive results 

• What motivates a woman to answer an ad 

• Why romances begun through the classifieds tend to last 
longer 

• Why the odds are already heavily stacked in your favor 

• Where, when- and how to place your ad 

• How to find out quickly if she is for real 

• And much more, including real-life experiences, Internet dat-

"If this book were required reading in 
high schools, this column would be out of 
business." — The Playboy Advisor 

Sexual Solutions is the most sensi- 
ble, supportive and practical guide ever 
written for men about making love. At a 
time when roughly half of all American 
men experience some problems in their 
lovemaking, Sexual Solutions provides 
simple, clear, useful answers for virtually 
every sexual situation. It shows how 
slight shifts in attitude, technique, and 
approach can often eliminate recurrent 
problems and create successful and 
exciting sex. Men who make the relatively 
minor adjustments outlined in this candid 
book will be well on their way to becoming the confident, accom- 
plished and appreciated lovers they have always wanted to be. 

Written in straightforward language, the book is solidly grounded 
in current research from scientific sources. Comprehensive in scope, 
the book combines simple do-it-yourself sex therapy suggestions with 
the latest information on women's lovemaking preferences, birth con- 
trol, and genital self-health for men. 

Here at last is a book that really helps, a book aimed not at clinical 
therapists or "macho" men out to prove something — but at anybody 
who wants to increase his skills in natural, pleasurable lovemaking. 
Highly recommended!

DEAREST PET 

On Bestiality 

by Midas Dekkers 

Translated by Paul Vincent 

Kinsey's research showed that 8 percent of men and 3.5 percent 
of women had had sex with an animal, and that in rural areas the fig- 
ure for men was closer to 50 percent! Yet, bestiality is almost univer- 
sally condemned. While our love for animals is extolled as noble and 
"natural," all erotic elements in the relationship between humans and 
other species are vilified and proscribed, thus consigning them to the 
realm of exotic pornography or crude innuendo. 

Even so, something remains of physical love for animals. In differ- 
ent forms, sublimated or occasionally celebrated, its traces can be 
found throughout art and popular culture: in Leda and the Swan, 
Beauty and the Beast, or the Lorelei; in a lubricious menagerie of 
satyrs and centaurs, wolfmen and vampires, all the way through to 
King Kong and Fritz the Cat, or even advertisements for luxury cat 
foods. 

Dearest Pet uncovers and explores those traces, illuminating the 
ambivalence of human attitudes to cross-species sexuality. Its author, 
the biologist and broadcaster Midas Dekkers, has analyzed bestiality 
in all its aspects — physical, psychological, and legal — and exam- 
ined its representations in religion and mythology, art and literature, 
pornography and advertising. Beautifully — and sometimes bizarrely 
— illustrated, his book is neither drily academic nor pruriently trivial, 
but erudite, witty and challenging: the first history of the last taboo. A 
book for animal lovers, and for those who are just their good friends.

THE BOOK OF THE PENIS 
by Maggie Paley 

The almighty penis (aka 
dick, schlong, pecker, rod, 
tool, Johnson, etc.) has long 
been a major object of ado- 
ration, revulsion, ridicule, 
amazement, joy, pride, and 
even frustration. But does 
anyone fully understand the 
penis? Novelist, playwright, 
and journalist Maggie Paley 
immersed herself in the 
obsessive world of this most 
forthright of organs, looking 
for answers high and low. 
She pored over scholarly 
volumes, anthropology 
texts, and sex-shop 
glossies; interviewed sex 
workers, transsexuals, and 
phallus connoisseurs of all 
stripes; attended male strip 
shows and a Hindu lingam 
ceremony; visited web sites 
where men share masturba- 
tion techniques; and even 
searched out the current location of Napoleon's penis. And, yes, she 
objectively addresses the big question: "Does size matter?" Along the 
way, we encounter deliciously entertaining and highly informative 
chapters on penis worship, fellatio, and men who are famous for their 
dicks, as well as the penis in art, fashion, literature, films, and much 
more. 

This handsomely designed bedside companion, delightfully illus- 
trated by Sergio Ruzzier, virtually erupts with facts, fallacies, fan- 
tasies, and amazing adventures, and is the perfect gift for women and 
men, straight and gay. It is certain to develop classic stature.

THE BIG BOOK OF FILTH 
6500 sex slang words and phrases 
With an Introduction by Jonathon Green 

and cartoons by Kipper Williams 

Immerse yourself

filthy, The Big Book of 
Filth is a guided tour 
of wordscapes teem- 
ing with genitalia and 
sex acts. Work your

ably didn't want to know — and words and phrases for sexual prac- 
tices you had no idea even existed.

PSYCHOPATHIA SEXUALIS 
by Richard von Krafft-Ebing, M.D. 

This groundbreaking and unabridged classic from the founder of 
modern sexual pathology contains 238 case histories detailing every 
form of sexual perversion — with a new appendix of additional case 
histories unpublished for over one hundred years. Translated from the 
twelfth and final German edition, Psychopathia Sexualis is essential 
reading for students of sexual perversity, criminal psychology, and 
European fin-de-siecle art and literature. 

First published in Germany in 1886, Krafft-Ebing's book was 
extremely successful as both a classic reference volume for psychia- 
trists and as a new form of pornographic literature for the sexually 
transgressive and perverse. Printed in seven languages and twelve 
editions during the author's lifetime, Psychopathia Sexualis was an 
influence on such notable figures as Sigmund Freud (a younger col- 
league of Krafft-Ebing's at the University of Vienna), painters Gustav 
Klimt and Egon Schiele, writers Marcel Proust and Frank Wedekind, 
and philosopher Georges Bataille and the Surrealists. 

"Through Krafft-Ebing's hands, in consulting-room, clinic and law- 
court, passed a succession of the undersexed and the hypersexed, 
rapists, stranglers, rippers, stabbers, blood-sucking vampires and 
necrophHiacs, sadists who hurt their partners, masochists who thrilled 
at the sight of the whip, males in female clothes and females in male 
clothes, slaves of scatology, defilers of statues, despoilers of children 
and animals, frotteurs and voyeurs, reinfleurs and stercoraires, 
pageists and exhibitionists, pedophiles and gerotophiliacs, satyria- 
sists and nymphomaniacs, and again and again male-craving males 
and female-craving females, and the endless army of men who lusted 
after women in perverse ways, but had no desire for her vagina." — 
Victor Robinson, M.D.

THE CLITORAL TRUTH 

The Secret World at Your Fingertips 

by Rebecca Chalker 

Dismissed and misun- 
derstood for hundreds of 
years, the clitoris is the one 
part of the female whose 
sole purpose is pleasure. 
The truth is out there, arid 
internationally celebrated 
sex educator Rebecca 
Chalker has something to 
say about it. In The Clitoral 
Truth, Chalker offers the 
only mainstream, in-depth 
exploration devoted solely 
to women's genital 
anatomy and sexual 
response. Her highly 
informative tour of the cli- 
toris is a sexuality workshop in book form. Female readers will learn 
new routes to sexual pleasure and new ways to enhance their sexual 
response. Male readers will discover a world they never dreamed of. 

The clitoris and the penis once were considered equal and equiv- 
alent in all respects. After the 18th century, however, this knowledge 
was gradually suppressed and forgotten, along with the idea of the 
clitoris as an extensive organ system. In the early 1970s, important 
work was done reviving awareness of the clitoris. In The Clitoral 
Truth, Chalker honors this work and continues it. Here she also 
includes the most recent available studies to show how the clitoris's 
many parts work together to produce orgasms, and investigates the 
veracity of reports of female ejaculation. 

The Clitoral Truth describes how women have begun to trans- 
form the deeply entrenched male-centered model of sexuality by 
emphasizing full-body pleasure, and the ways women are increasing 
their pleasure through masturbation, sex toys, videos, books, work- 
shops, individual coaching sessions and through the wealth of infor- 
mation on the Internet. Here are vivid personal accounts, a savvy, 
in-depth survey of female sexuality resources, and bold illustrations. 
For people who want to expand their sexual horizons: discover The 
Clitoral Truth.

THE SEXUAL CRIMINAL 

a psychoanalytical study 

Second edition 

by J. Paul de River, M.D., F.A.C.S. 

First published in 1 949 as a criminology/sexology textbook for law 
enforcement personnel, The Sexual Criminal methodically and clini- 
cally examines the bizarre and illicit sexual behavior of Los Angeles in 
the 1930s and '40s — a fascinating glimpse at the seedy underbelly 
of a city littered with innumerable true-life noir characters: 

• An electrician who has sex with his pet collie 

• An Italian immigrant who engages in clandestine 
necrophilia 

• An inebriated hustler who strangles his homosexual 
lover 

• A drug-addicted butcher who eviscerates his dance-hall 
girlfriend 

• An adulterous housewife who puts rat poison in her 
husband's coffee. 

Authored by the controversial director of the Los Angeles Police 

Department's Sex Offense Bureau, and graphically illustrated with 

mugshots of criminals and crime scene photographs of their victims, 

The Sexual Criminal is both a compelling sociological time capsule 

of a not-so-distant era in the history of Los Angeles and a voyeuristic 

examination of the explosive sex lives of its inhabitants.

THE LITTLE BOOK OF KETAMINE 
by Kit Kelly 

Ketamine hydrochloride is known on the street as K, Ket, Kit-Kat, 
Special K, Super K, and Vitamin K. The FDA has approved Ketamine 
as a general anesthetic for use on humans, especially with delicate 
patients such as children and the elderly. But it is most commonly 
used by veterinarians and plastic surgeons who conduct operations in 
their offices. In recent years, it has become an increasingly popular 
recreational drug. Most of the Ketamine available on the street in the 
United States has been stolen from veterinary clinics and pharma- 
ceutical supply houses. It has been estimated that up to 90 percent of 
the Ketamine bought on the street has been stolen from medical 
sources. Ketamine is available on the Internet from various countries, 
including Mexico and Thailand. In Mexico, Ketamine is an over-the- 
counter drug and available in various strengths from most pharma- 
ceutical supply houses for veterinarians. It is easily purchased at 
border towns and smuggled into the US since guards are looking for 
more traditional drugs, like pot. Ketamine induces a dissociative state 
described as the separation of the mind or ego from the bodily exis- 
tence and causes the mind to hallucinate other realities. 

The Little Book of Ketamine describes the recreational and spir- 
itual use of ketamine including: • What K is, how it is made, and how 
it is used • How K affects the brain • Hallucinations, near-death and 
out-of-body experiences • Dosages, administration and safety pre- 
cautions • Accounts of K-Trips by experienced users • How it feels to 
go to K-Land • Ketamine and the law • And much more. 

The Little Book of Ketamine reviews the history of Ketamine 
from its discovery to its use in night clubs and raves, as well as 
describing extraordinary stories of Ketamine's effects while being 
mindful of what is myth and what is reality. Highly recommended as 
an addition to your drug library.

UR-INE TROUBLE 

The Truth About Drug Tests: Why Drug Users 

are Passing, and Non-Users are Failing 

by Kent Holtorf, M.D. 

What you ate for breakfast 
could cost you your job. 

In this book, drug-testing 
expert Kent Holtorf, M.D., 
exposes the shocking truth about 
drug testing. Backed with more 
than 200 medical references, this 
pioneering book uncovers the dis- 
crimination and ethical issues 
surrounding drug issues. If you're 
a woman, employers may be test- 
ing you for pregnancy without 
your knowledge. If you're black, 
you're 30 to 50 more times likely 
to be accused of doing drugs from 
a hair test. 

Concerned? Read on. You'll 
also learn: • What common foods 
will cause a false positive drug 
test • What household products 
can cover drugs in the urine • 
What else your employer can learn about you from your test • How 
long it takes certain drugs to show up — and disappear — from your 
system. 

Dr. Dean Edell, nationally syndicated radio and TV medical jour- 
nalist, said, u Ur-ine Trouble is going to blow the lid off drug testing in 
this country. After reading the book, even the most devout proponents 
of drug testing will be forced to reexamine their position on its wide- 
spread use. You need to protect yourself from falsely being labeled a 
drug user by inaccuracies of drug testing."

Acid offers a wealth of

LEGALIZE THIS! 

The case for decriminalizing drugs 

by Douglas Husak 



tagaltee This! the case for 
detramroaltetog drags ', 
Oeuglas Husak 



Recreational drug users (other 
than those who take harmful sub- 
stances like alcohol and tobacco) 
are regularly Imprisoned. Nearly 
half a million drug offenders are 
incarcerated in U.S. jails, more 
than the total number of prisoners 
in 1980 and more than the entire 
EU prison population. In some 
states more is spent on maintain- 
ing the prison system than on 
education. Current drug policies 
lead to immense personal suffer- 
ing, as well as police corruption, 
organized crime, and contempt 
for the law, and make drugs more 
dangerous because they are ille- 
gal and thus not subject to proper 
controls. Politicians from all sides 
of the political spectrum are 
beginning to ask: Is it worth it? 
In arguing that criminalization is unjust, Douglas Husak explodes 
many of the myths that surround drug use. In some years, more than 
half of high school seniors take drugs, yet the U.S. is not overrun with 
drug-crazed addicts. Horror stories of the dangers of drug use 
abound, but the truth is more prosaic: Although recreational drugs are 
sometimes bad for users, there are between 80 and 90 million U.S. 
citizens who have used illicit drugs without ill effects.

SALVIA DIVINORUM GROWER'S GUIDE 

by the Sociedad para la Preservation 

de las Plantas del Mlsterlo 

The latest rage among psyche- 
delic-plant aficionados is one of the 
most potent hallucinogens ever dis- 
covered - yet is perfectly legal! This 
guide tells you how to obtain and grow 
your own Salvia divinorum — 
"diviner's sage." You won't be able to 
buy the seeds anywhere. If you want it, 
the authors say, you have to get it the 
same way everyone else has for the 
last 2,000 years. 

Mazatec Indians used the plant in 
medical, magical and divinatory cere- 
monies for centuries. The authors, the 
Sociedad para la Preservation de las 
Plantas del Misterio, make it their work 
to compile and disseminate informa- 
tion about cultivating plants with 
shamanic histories. 

In this book you'll find: • Optimum growing parameters • Several 
ways to grow, including hydroponic methods and planting in soil • The 
damage caused by pests such as spider mites, aphids, and white flies 
and what you can do to stop it • Sources for cuttings and supplies. 

Even though there are almost 1,000 species in the genus Salvia, 
there are none quite like the "sage of seers." Almost too good to be 
legal!

greatest pain killer ever discovered. 
Opium is the parent of morphine,

Marx, but some people insist on the 
real thing.

ECSTASY 

Dance, Trance & Transformation 

by Nicholas Saunders with Rick Doblin 

The banning in 1995 of the drug 
MDMA — popularly known as Ecstasy — 
has slammed the door on research into 
its psychotherapeutic applications, and 
virtually assured Ecstasy's ongoing illicit 
use as a recreational drug. The result 
has been an explosion in the drug's 
underground popularity, the growth of 
counterculture be-ins known as "raves," 
and a proliferation of adulterated sup- 
plies. 

Is Ecstasy a safe and benign trans- 
forming drug, as its advocates contend? 
Or is it likely to cause irreparable damage 
to the brain's serotonin processing, as 
Ecstasy's detractors have claimed for a 
decade? For the answers, turn to Ecstasy: Dance, Trance & Trans- 
formation, a book which contains everything you need to know about 
the drug: • What is Ecstasy? • Is Ecstasy an aphrodisiac? • Is Ecstasy 
addictive? • Does Ecstasy harm brain cells? • Is Ecstasy dangerous? 
• How can Ecstasy be used more safely? • Does Ecstasy's use lead to 
other drug use? • How can you tell what's in a pill? • Is Ecstasy really 
the drug of the 90s? • How does Ecstasy affect its users* lives? • Does 
herbal Ecstasy work, and is it safe? • Are drug-induced mystical expe- 
riences real? 

These and many other pressing questions about Ecstasy are 
answered in this book, which is sold for informational purposes only.

THE HEROIN USER'S HANDBOOK 
by Francis Moraes, Ph.D. 

Heroin has traditionally been referred to as 'The Hardest Drug." 
There were soft drugs, hard drugs, and the hardest drug — heroin. 
Even amongst heavy drug users, heroin was often a taboo. "Any drug 
is worth trying — except heroin." 

But over the last three decades, things have changed. The purity 
of street-level heroin has increased twenty fold (20 times), allowing 
users to snort and smoke it, whereas they were previously forced to 
inject. As a result, more people are experimenting with heroin than 
ever before. 

The larger number of heroin users has not translated into more 
knowledge about this drug, however. That is where The Heroin 
User's Handbook comes in. This book explains everything that a 
heroin user needs to know. It dispels the myths that surround heroin 
and replaces them with accurate and objective information. 

The Heroin User's Handbook provides critical information that 
will save lives and allow users to avoid addiction. The book includes: 
Navigating the heroin subculture 
Avoiding addiction 
Safe injection techniques 
Smoking and snorting procedures 
Chemically purifying street heroin 
How to buy heroin — in any city 
Avoiding diseases associated with heroin 
Dealing with the legal system 
Social aspects of heroin use 
Detoxing yourself 
And much, much more. 
The author, Francis Moraes, is also the author of The Little Book 
of Heroin and The Little Book of Opium and the publisher of the 
Heroin Helper Website. He brings a unique outlook to the study of 
heroin — neither glorifying nor demonizing the drug, but just providing 
people with "the straight dope" on heroin.

WEST COAST SMOKE 

The Inside Story of the B.C. Pot Boom 

by Drew Edwards 

Welcome to ground zero in the world pot trade: scenic and staid 
Nelson, British Columbia, tucked away deep in the Canadian Rock- 
ies. The days of Maui Wowie and Thai stick are gone. No longer does 
high-octane pot need to enter North America from foreign shores. 
British Columbia now produces the finest weed in the world — six 
times as potent as most traditional marijuana — in highly scientific 
grow labs and operations where the latest techniques in horticultural 
engineering are employed. An hour from a sporadically protected bor- 
der and surrounded on all sides by mountains, Nelson makes an ideal 
base for shipping "BC Bud" across North America. 

But the growing and smuggling of amazing pot is only a small part 
of the story. Add to this strange world Nelson's Holy Smoke Culture 
shop where weed is openly smoked by staff and customers — with 
the authorities unable to shut it down because of a judge that sides 
with the dopeheads over the cops — and you start to get a picture of 
the bizarre, idyllic area of the world where it seems just about every- 
one either smokes or grows or sells — and often all three. 

Drew Edwards, managing editor of the Nelson Daily News, has 

been at ground zero for several years watching as "BC Bud" takes 

over as the pot of choice around the world and the local community 

growers and smugglers evade the efforts of small-town politicians and 

cops to shut them down. Edwards takes us behind the scenes for a 

look at a seldom seen and poorly understood outlaw phenomenon.

by Christian Ratsch 

Marijuana Med- 
icine, a complete 
visual record of 
cannabis culture, 
explores the role of 
hemp in medicinal 
systems spanning 
the globe. Cannabis 
has accompanied 
the development of 
human culture from 
its very beginnings 
and can be found in 
the healing tradi- 
tions of cultures 
through Africa, Asia, 
Europe, and the 
Americas. Even 
today it is an impor- 
tant part of many 
Asian healing tradi- 
tions: in Ayurveda 
cannabis is praised 
for its tonic and 
aphrodisiac qualities, and in traditional Chinese medicine it is cited as 
a superb antidepressant. It also remains a significant part of the heal- 
ing and visionary traditions of Latin American curanderos and Brazil- 
ian, Nepalese, and Indian folk medicine. Modern research has 
confirmed the effectiveness of marijuana's application in treating such 
diseases as asthma and glaucoma. Christian Ratsch profiles the 
medicinal, historical, and cultural uses of cannabis in each of these 
societies and medical systems, providing remedies and recipes for 
those interested in how it can be used to treat specific conditions.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF DRUGS 

From the Stone Age to the Stoned Age 

by Antonio Escohotado 

From remote antiq- 
uity to the present era of 
designer drugs and dra- 
conian interdiction, drugs 
have played a prominent 
role in the cultural, spiri- 
tual, and social develop- 
ment of civilizations. A 
Brief History of Drugs 
shows how the story of 
drugs illuminates the 
story of humanity, explor- 
ing the long relationship 
between human beings 
and mind-altering sub- 
stances. Marijuana, for 
example, has been used 
in India since time imme- 
morial to stimulate men- 
tal agility and sexual 
prowess, and a census 
in 312 C.E. revealed 
nearly 800 stores in the 
city of Rome devoted to 
selling opium. Similar 
examples can be found 

in cultures as diverse as the Celts, the ancient Egyptians, the Aztecs, 
and other peoples around the world. 

Professor Escohotado also examines the present-day differences 
between drug-tolerant societies like the Netherlands and Switzerland 
and countries advocating complete repression of these substances. 
He provides a comprehensive analysis of the enormous social costs 
of the drug war that is coming under increasing fire from all corners of 
society. Ultimately, A Brief History of Drugs demonstrates that 
drugs have been used by all societies and the contribution they have 
made to humanity's development has been enormous. The task we 
face today is to better understand them, instead of continuing to indis- 
criminately demonize them. "Just say no," says Escohotado, is not an 
option. Just say "know" is.

CIDER HARD AND SWEET 

History, Traditions, and Making Your Own 

by Ben Watson 







Drinking fresh, or "sweet" 
cider in the fall is an Ameri- 
can tradition. And recent 
years have seen the resur- 
gence of "hard" (alcoholic) 
cider — once the drink of 
choice in England and the 
Americas — after decades of 
obscurity. Now this delightful, 
fizzy drink is turning up again 
in American farmer's markets 
and in bars and restaurants 
as a refreshing alternative to 
handcrafted beer. And this 
elegantly simple beverage is 
so easy to make that produc- 
ing good homemade cider, 
both hard and sweet, is well 
within the reach of any 
enthusiast. 

In this entertaining book, 
Ben Watson explores the cul- 
tural and historical roots of 

cider. He introduces us to the different styles of cider — including 
draft, farmhouse, French, New England, and sparkling, as well as 
apple wine, applejack, and cider vinegar — and gives complete 
instructions on how to make them at home with a minimum of time 
and equipment. In addition, there are tips on evaluating homemade 
ciders, instructions for hosting a cider tasting, and recipes for cooking 
and baking with cider. 

In this passionate treatise, Watson encourages us to reject the 
"boring, denatured foods" of our supermarkets and to enjoy the "gen- 
uine article — real cider made by a person who knows something 
about apples and cares about quality." Cider Hard and Sweet will 
interest not only apple aficionados, but anyone who appreciates good 
food and drink and the cultural traditions that surround and inform 
them.

THE LITTLE BOOK OF HEROIN 
by Francis Moraes, Ph.D. 

Heroin — the hardest drug! 
Fact? or Myth? Find out in The Lit- 
tle Book of Heroin! The word — 
heroin — calis forth strong emo- 
tions — especially fear. It is much 
like our fear of Satan — an active 
agent that entices the young and 
innocent with initial pleasures of 
the flesh, but once ensnared they 
face a life of slavery and misery — 
a living hell! Such extreme reac- 
tions exacerbate the problem. 
Recreational drug adventurers 
quickly dispel the myth, creating a 
huge credibility gap. "Everything 
they said was a lie. I can resist this 
— if I want to!" Once hooked, or 
heavily "chipping," — also called 
"pre-addicted" — the victim is no 
longer innocent and hides in 
shame, finding refuge with junkie outcasts — instead of seeking help. 

The Little Book of Heroin is a straightforward look at heroin and 
who junkies really are. It covers history and the evolution from opium 
to morphine to heroin; how heroin is procured on the "street" and how 
it is chemically purified; ways heroin is used and diseases junkies get; 
methods of detox and the real danger of "sudden death" and much 
more. The Little Book of Heroin replaces myths with solid informa- 
tion useful to the user for reducing harm; and to concerned family, 
friends, and professionals who want to better understand.

THE VARIETIES OF PSYCHEDELIC EXPERIENCE 

The Classic Guide to the Effects of LSD 

on the Human Psyche 

by Robert Masters, Ph.D. and Jean Houston, Ph.D. 

The Varieties of Psyche- 
delic Experience was first pub- 
lished in 1966, just as the first 
legal restrictions on the use of 
psychedelic substances were 
being enacted. The authors' 
pioneering work on the effects 
of LSD on the human psyche, 
which was viewed by its partici- 
pants as possibly heralding a 
revolution in the study of the 
mind, was among the casual- 
ties of this interdiction. As a 
result, the promising results to 
which their studies attested 
were never fully explored. Nev- 
ertheless, their fifteen years of 
research represents a sober 
and authoritative appraisal of 
what remains one of the most 
controversial developments in 
the study of the human psyche. 
Avoiding the wild excesses taken by both sides on this issue, this 
book is unique for the light it sheds on the possibilities and the limita- 
tions of psychedelic drugs, as well as on the techniques for working 
with them. With drug legalization an increasingly important issue, 
The Varieties of Psychedelic Experience provides a welcome and 
much needed contrast to the current hysteria that surrounds this 
topic.

OPIUM POPPY 

Botany, Chemistry, and Pharmacology 

by L.D. Kapoor, Ph.D. 

Here is a comprehensive 
resource on the botany, chemistry 
and pharmacology of poppy pro- 
duction, from seed to alkaloid. 
The author begins with an histori- 
cal overview of the origin and use 
of the opium poppy in the ancient 
civilizations of Greece, Egypt, and 
Mesopotamia. He continues 
through plant and seed production 
and crop improvement and 
explores in detail the chemical 
and pharmaceutical by-products 
of the opium poppy. Kapoor dis- 
cusses the botany, agronomy, 
anatomy, physiology, and chemi- 
cal aspects of major alkaloids, 
their biosynthesis, the precursors 
identified, and other intermediary 
alkaloids. This book will serve as 
a useful companion to students of 

pharmacy, botany, and chemistry, providing an overall better under- 
standing of the opium poppy. 

Covered in depth are the developmental anatomy of the capsule 
with special reference to laticiferous vessels, and the repository of 
latex. The constitution of amphicribral bundles and their dissolution is 
depicted, and the chemistry of opium alkaloids and their biosynthesis 
is discussed. The site of synthesis and the role of alkaloids is cov- 
ered, as is the evaluation of analgesic actions of morphine in various 
pain models in experiments. 

L.D. Kapoor's Opium Poppy: Botany, Chemistry, and Pharma- 
cology \s without a doubt the definitive treatise on this wonderful and 
useful plant. Sold for informational and academic purposes only.

HOW TO AVOID A DRUNK DRIVING CONVICTION 
by Judge X 

Unless you've been busted for 
drunk driving lately, you probably 
don't realize how much the laws 
have changed. Here are a few 
sobering statistics: Under the .08 
rule being adopted by many 
states, two beers makes you a 
drunk driver. For commercial driv- 
ers — and that means anyone 
required to drive as part of their 
employment (truckers, cab driv- 
ers, delivery persons, sales reps, 
etc.) — one deer will cost you your 
license and your job. And a drunk 
driving conviction routinely means 
lost driving privileges, jail time, 
and thousands of dollars in fines, 
fees and costs. 

So if you ever drink at all, you 
better find out what your rights are 
and how the system works. And nobody knows better than Judge X. A 
state judge for over 20 years, Judge X has presided over thousands 
of drunk driving cases. In this book, he answers all your questions 
about drinking and driving: • How do you handle a traffic stop if you've 
been drinking? • Are you entitled to a lawyer before taking a breath 
test? • The one way to effectively mask your breath. • How to chal- 
lenge breathalyzer results in court. • Should you waive the preliminary 
hearings? • How to "donate" a few thousand to get out of a jam. 

If you ever enjoy a drink after work, at a friend's house, at the ball- 
park, at a party, then you have a lot to lose. If you are preparing for a 
DUI trial, then you must get this book. You need to know your rights. 
You need to know the ropes. You need to know Judge X. Don't you 
think it's time you got acquainted?

PSYCHEDELIC SHAMANISM 

The Cultivation, Preparation and Shamanic Use 

of Psychotropic Plants 

by Jim DeKorne 



From the author of The Hydro-

space." 

A master gardener, DeKorne 
explains how to cultivate many of these plants and how to extract 
their powerful psychoactive alkaloids. He provides down-to-earth 
information on dosages, typical reactions, length and intensity of 
experience, dangerous combinations, traditional and ritual uses, and 
much more. Plants and combinations covered include: 

• Belladonna Alkaloids: Flying Ointments, Datura, 
Brugmansia, Devil's Weed 

• D-Lysergic Acid Amide: Morning Glories and Sleepy 
Grass

Rue, Phalaris Grass

"Mushroom Ayahuasca"

Root, Heimia, Calea Zachatechichi, Fly Agaric Mush- 
room, Iboga.

explore "inner space." '.

scopic amount is ingested. Yet most people 
know very little about this influential molecule. 

Exhaustively researched, Acid Trips and 
Chemistry cuts through the confusion and 
delivers the facts about: • Chemical formulas • 
The causes of a bad trip • What factors influ- 
ence a trip • Acid's spiritual and creative effe
